Topic: 77ft Gun Boats

Hello to all,
How much bracing if any was added to the front deck to support the forward 40mm? I have read of the compression problems on the forward hulls in the early Elcos.
At speed I would think the stress with the extra weight would be terrific! How much if at all did this effect the crew quarters and that area of the boat?

Be Happy
