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:
