Jeff Disregard my last post , I don't deserve to be considered anything but a new guy
I did not miss the plan I never looked for it , was working off the Torpedo rolls , The new guy did not think to look at the ELCO rolls. The tubes are mounted on the deck so why would I want to look at a deck plan ??? 1 year into this boat & still have so much to learn. have what I need know . Thanks
Mike

Lol Mike don't be hard on yourself. You're the one doing the tough work that's way above my physically modeled pay grade! Happy building my friend.

Finished fabricating the torpedo mounts suspension ( ok guys not really sure what sure what there called) . I don’t like using aluminum because it doesn’t solder with getting into a painful process, so it has to be glued, which it equally does not like, anyway it got there in the end,

Fabricated torpedo tube brackets and locks. Took allot of time but I’m happy with the result.
