The wooden doors that we have installed hang from rods or poles that run across

No they don't...unless the configuration has changed since I've put them in...and that may be the case as Rick has worked on them since I put them up.

The one in the Jr. Officer berthing room (next to the ward room) was hung by two hooks from what appeared to be a pole.  The hooks were the screw-in kind.

I have merged the Batish discussion of Cod's curtains and the Cod's discussion of Cod's curtains into one thread in the Cod's Curtain Section.

Thanks,

No.

First, it's not historically correct.
Second, it'll stainless steel, so it wouldn't stick (I am assuming you mean the brackets holding on to the wall?)...

And thirdly, it's not historicially correct.


Did I mention it's not historically correct?

I have to get a better look at them this weekend and I'll even take a few pictures.  Since this boat was in use until the late 60's, who knows how many conversions she's gone through.

Paul,

  Have you guys added rings/hooks to the curtains, yet?  I'd be interested in seeing pictures when you get them installed.

Sorry to say, I've been running in other directions. But it is on the list of things to do, eventually.  Rings on the existing curtains... gotta talk to a professional seamstress/curtain maker and find out how it's done.

While onboard two weeks ago I looked at ours and ours are looped over the bar and then sewn back onto itself, works just fine by me and less noise IMHO. Wink

Gotta go by what WAS done, and not what should have been done!!! knuppel2

I have some photos recently unearthed that indicate rings...  I will wait till COD is closed to general tourism in Oct. That way the effect of the curtains on vandalism (potential) will be moot!

I found photos of the USS Bream that show rings for the curtains, too, but they were too far away to get a good look at them.
