Thanks Drew, don't know why I'd think Cluster was skipper of the 109. I'll blame it on post-3D work brain fog.

I see I forgot to take into account the 3/8" retaining cable that would be between the DC and toe rail in my chute pad height.

I guess I'll include a full rail and either a short or gapped version in my 3DP part.

.Jeff,on some pictures I once saw-but didn't save,silly me
- the DC racks are held in position by butterfly nuts.
I think this would also have been the case for the 109 to ensure easy removal during torpedo reload.
Greetings

Yes Daniele I remember seeing that. I wonder how long they could leave a torpedo in the tube before it needed maintenance.

It looks like they took the bare minimum out of the toe rail for this installation:
