Hello Phil,
I have a lot of that. What precisely are you looking for? Blueprints or Photos?

I can’t believe visitors still don’t go to “Documents” page, see menu bar. There, visitors can request access to all of the Elco and Higgins Drawings that were available on microfilm that I purchase over ten years ago and scanned into PDF files. These .PDF files are available for free, but you have to request the download link from me. Click on the link in the blueprint section of the “Documents” page.

There are different layouts depending on Higgins Series, such as, 71-94, 197-254, 265-313, 450-485 or 625-660. Most of the difference is in the bridge area on deck and below deck the three sections aft of the engine room, such as Fuel Tank Room, Storage/Aft Crew Room, and the Lazarette.

Below is the cutaway artwork I created for a 2010 Calendar, it is the Higgins 625 Series, the actual configuration is for PT 631:

Hi Dick!
I promise I was about to point these out but you beat me to it! Although I have a lot of blueprints they are a lot harder to share than having them just click on the link that you already provided. If he was talking about photos then I could assist with those as well. I swear I was not trying to steal your thunder! LOL
Thanks again for providing all of that information and making it easily available.

Jerry

Jerry . . . LOL back at you!

Absolutely No problem, nothing was meant by the statement. I was simply trying to direct visitors to the Document Page, because it is very, very seldom visited. Yet I receive emails all the time about where to find things. Also much of the materials can now be found on other sites or facebook. I try diligently to credit the individuals providing the materials, such as yourself and specially Al Ross. If you, as well as others have materials to share please email them to me and I will see they get included on the Documents Page.

Dick . . .
