One other detail about the day cabin windows, the stbd fwd fixed window was mounted against the outside while the others were inset quite a bit:

Jeff, my first try at making the 20mm horn, using the pics you sent, close I think, maybe a little short on the support post, still at this scale the simple is patience test thoughts if I should rework ?

"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.


Charlie"

PT 105 and the rest of RON 5 ran down from the Brooklyn Navy Yard to Norfolk Virginia. They are being loaded at what is called Norfolk Naval Shipyard in Portsmounth Virginia. The ship is at pier 5. I worked there for 3 years.

Take care,
TED

The mast frame for the 103 class boat, looking for a good way to put, this from the pics and drawing for Jeff D’s site it’s not round, yet it’s not square looking either , if that makes sense. Can anyone help the shape of the frame parts. ?

I have the cross sections on the mast drawing, they're hard to notice but they are to the left of the side view. The legs are an airfoil shape and they taper towards the top. Here's one to the left of the base socket:

Thanks Jeff, When you look hard at it, I see what you mean. My best guess for getting the material would be Aero or streamline tubing .

Great , once I get the close size so I can order the tube, Let the mast building began. .

Fit checking parts on the engine house cover, still some clean up to do, smooth out some of the wood, more primer, but getting there. Did I miss anything in the detail?
