Topic: Photo of Jim Shaw, The 495 was named after him.
http://www.ptboatforum.com/cgi-bin/MB2/netboardr.cgi?cid=101&fid=102&tid=723



I just got a great letter from the nephew and namesake of Jim Shaw. The 495 boat was re-named Gentleman Jim after Jim Shaw was killed in action during the 495s second patrol. He sent me this photo and i wanted to share it. i've also added it to my RON 33 album.

Ed,
Can you post the website of the Ron 33 and your model's photos? I started looking through all the messages here but it must be way back by now.
Thanks.

Ray
