An interesting photo of a Higgins with bow and stern mounted 40mm's posted by Eduardo Oscar Gonzalez Mossini on FB. His caption:

During the sixties: ARA Alakush or Toowora (all Higgins boats at the argentine navy had indian names) in service at the Beagle channel.

Thanks Al.
I knew this looked familiar. I was asking myself: Self haven't we discussed this in great detail before? Good catch!

Yep I remember we discussed them before but I thought the image was new. Ah well, still a cool boat especially the camo! It reminds me a bit of the pattern on the 77' Morobe boat.
