A recent image I came across showed me that I had the anchor light cable routing wrong, it passed in front of the brace cross piece. Sorry Stu for adding to your work load. If anyone else saved the images as a reference please grab the new ones here: http://www.pt103.com/PT_Boat_Components_Mast.html. They are also a bit larger.

I also cleaned up the web site a bit by removing side graphics.

Ahoy there Jeff.

Those who strive for the utmost accuracy in their models are indebted to you and others who post such great information about PT boats on this forum.

Again. we are heavilly in debt to Dick for all the hard work he does and also for his dedication to providing this forum for us to discuss our love of PT boats and/or their use.

I also want to thank all the vets of actual PT boat operations for sharing their experiences with us. For modellers, those experiences bring the models to life and allow us to prolong the memory of and the activities of those "Iron men on wooden boats" to newer generations to see.

A hearty thank you all for your willingness to share,

Cheers from Peter

Thanks Peter, I try. As a matter of fact, several people have said I'm very trying.

Jeff - - - OUTSTANDING !

You must have to wear an aluminum foil skull cap - shinny side up - while trying to extract the most minute detailed information form the microfilm copies and surely a pair of Coke bottle glass ! ! ! ! !

Thanks Dick, I know how well you know the joy of trying to read some of the less clear drawings. Scanning the microfilm in at the best possible quality like you did, and being able to zoom in sure beats the heck out of photo squinting. <3

I'll admit to the foil cap, but not for the reasons you mention. When I was probed and implanted, for some reason the aliens didn't want to go anywhere near the usual spot so they used my ear. Just as well, I'd look dumb in foil undies.
