Hi there again.

Please look at the EARLY WAR rafts shown in this image and particularly the web-like structure in the bottom of each raft.

[imagehttp://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p249/ptboats/PeterTareBuilder/PT-105StbGunTubDeckWindow.jpg">

At first I thought this structure might be thin wood but now I think it might have been a canvas or similar material webbing. Does any one know for sure what that material was?

Does any one have a better image of the inside of onre of these EARLY War rafts?

Thanks and cheers from PeterTareBuilder
