All but the last pair for the engine room are original.

Sometime in the Sixties they were put in to give visibility for the man on the shift controls in the engine room. As the telegraph system is still used for the shifting, it made for a good 'just in case the telegraph failed' when docking. A little extra light doesn't hurt either.

When ever I see these ARS type boats I'm reminded of the boats used in the movie In Harm's Way (1965 Otto Preminger Films / Paramount). Near the end of the movie involving the action scenes for the PT boats, it appears they used the stage props from They Were Expendable (1945 Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer) also incorporating some of the actual boats in the water clips.

Are they, also, the same sets which were used in PT-109?

And, are those sets in storage anywhere?

Is there any kind book, publication, article, manual, or drawing, etc., etc, you DON'T have on PT's and related boats - this is getting old - you show off .

Thanks for the post, very interesting and much appreciated.

Actually, my collection only scratches the surface. Now if someone would come up with a detail and specifications book for a Higgins...
