Here are my Elco 80-foot, cutaway drawings from a calendar I made back in 2008. The artwork was started in the late 1995, and prior to my finding of the Elco 80-foot microfilm. This artwork was drawn from a slew of blueprint copies purchased from PT Boats Inc, and photographs found in various books and on the internet. It would have been much easier if I had, had the microfilm drawing. Imagination played a big part in illustrating these with the available reference at the time. Some day I would like to update them with the more accurate information now available, but arthritis pops up its ugly head more often than not.

This would have been a good question for the PT vets that used to grace this forum... Sadly most of them have passed on.

As far as I know, they were nobody's "turf" and were used by anybody as well as for 20mm and 50 cal. ammo storage under the seats / bunks. A vet related a story to me in which he was injured on patrol and spent the return trip in the day room. In the Pacific, the heat made the boat's interior unpleasant if not intolerable during the daytime sleeping hours particularly if there was no tree cover for shade.

That's about all I got Phil. And I agree with you about Dick's work, it is great and really helps show what the various structures looked like and how everything went together!
