For those Elco's that had red waterlines, did they also have a black boot topping?

Thanks!!

Rick,

I checked through almost all my photos and only found boot toppings on the pre-war experimental PTs with the light gray hulls and on the construction photos of the first batch of Higgins with the original superstructure. Everything else I have shows just the red.

Cheers,
Andy

Hi,
I think what you may see as resembling boot topping is just grime and algae along the waterline.

Best Regards,
Stu.

Andy, Stu and Will:

You guys may have a point; it might just be algae and sludge along the waterline.

Thanks!!!

Rick

Take a look at Stu's Elco model build. He got it right.
