I hope you find one! I haven't been able to see one in action yet. I believe that one works with the USS Drum now, hope to visit when they are there soon.

Good evening ladies and gents,

As you know, we've been running our LH program aboard the Batfish for a little over 10 years now with great success. I work for the Army museum system and it's beginning to look like I'll PCS to Ft. Lee, Virginia this fall. It comes with a promotion but I'll have to leave the Batfish. I'm looking for a new sub-museum home and I'm looking for either an established crew or a museum that's receptive to building a Living History crew from scratch.

Thanks,
Correy

For what its worth, I remember from the U-505 tour booklet from 40 years ago that they had the capability for arc-welding via equipment in the motor room.

Rich,

I honestly have no idea what kind of welding equipment that they carried and honestly I can't remember what we carried on the USS Honolulu SSN 718 from '91-'94 when I was onboard her.

Rich,

I am pretty sure that the Torsk doesn't have her original block and tackle onboard anymore, they may however have a better copy of the drawing that you posted the link for.

Honestly I don't have any idea how much they are onboard her anymore, you may want to post over on the bbs and see if they can help out. www.usstorsk.org

Do any of the museum boats have an original set of the block and tackle used on the davit above crew's mess hatch that could be measured?  I *think* this is:
- 2" circ.(5/8") manila line, length?
- 8" wood  block with swivel, to mount with shackle on top, with becket on bottom
- 8" wood swivel hook double block
- rope thimble for the line

Do any of you have the withdrawing/loading lines for the torpedo tubes?
- 8" snatch block with swivel hook
- hook with 90 deg. turn to hook on torpedo tube
- ?? diam. manila line
- thimble for the line
hard to read, but check out:
