Grady,
105 certainly had the raft box in photos of her refueling en-route to the Galapagos Is. from Panama.

Best Regards,
Stu.

Here is the photo Stu mentioned along with a few others. The series of photos taken July 1942, probably at Melville, shows her with depth charges in place of the aft torpedo tubes:

The first couple of pictures of being loaded on a ship are not at Melville. Melville didn't look like that. I believe it's the Brooklyn Navy Yard (technically the New York Navy Yard in Brooklyn). That's what Dirk Keresey says in his book PT 105 as they shipped out to Panama.

Best Regards,
Stu.

Thanks Charlie.

I believe it is Mike, don't know what the odds and ends are around the lockers of both boats are though. Here's a closeup:

Here's the locker (PT 117) compared to the heater (PT 141):

Here's a detail that's often overlooked. The forward most starboard side window on the Day Cabin is the same frame as that on the forward side of the Chart House. This window is the non opening type because it is located behind the ladder and hatch. I've yet to see a modeling company get that right.

When I spoke with Mr. Keresey about his boat he told me that the life raft was often on top of the Chart House or they threw it on the Day Cabin. They wanted it out of the way.

Grady,
No, there was a rain strip on the forward window and drain to port. Aft window, rain strip and drain to stbd. Welcome to the can of worms.

Best Regards,
Stu.

No. The forward and aft windows on the Day Cabin are the same as all the others. The only exception is the one behind the ladder which you can see in the attached photo. Note that the black out panel behind the ladder slides up and down instead of hinging in.
