Oops, the scoop was added to the rear cover not the front...

I was fortunate enough to have a discussion with Mr. Keresey about the 105 boat. He told me it was "Battleship Gray". I think that's buried somewhere in the forum. According to the reference I have from Dr. Ross the color should be Measure 1, overall 5D. This is how she was painted in Panama and it carried over into theatre. Under his command it was not green. Later photos show her in camouflage. That's the boat I'm going to finish one of these days!

Looks like they had a U-shaped pipe/bar that fit in a clip on the underside of the aft engine room hatch door to hold it open.

Wonder if all the early 80' Elcos with the original small, two-door engine room hatches had this hold-open device?

I've always thought of the 105 under Mr. Keresey as being 5D Gray.

According to the drawing they all had it Drew. It's actually the forward door, the aft one was traded in for an air scoop. I also see the attachments for the short-lived canvas air scoop on the sides of the base.

I found this shot of the 114 Drew, you can see the holdopen bar and it looks like the 127 wasn't the only boat to add a scoop to the small early hatchway:

The site has been a godsent for me stepping into the world of the PTs, however with a background in building rigged ships, I limited my posts to asking questions & research for my first PT build, I have been reluctant to post any photos of my build on the site, mainly because there’s a lot of PT experts here . I’m learning more about the boats so I guessed it was time I'm further along than this, however to pics of the deck keep in mind I’m not a professional builder & very little experience with Pts

Nice Grady, it's going be a shame to paint that deck! What kind of wood is that?
