looking for drawings/info on free flooding deck plates
« on: October 09, 2016, 05:53:21 PM »
Included is a picture I found on the web of the Ling's (SS-297) metal deck. The deck appears to be in its original configuration.
The Lionfish (SS-298) and the Ling are both Cramp boats, and I am guessing the Lionfish's aft deck once looked like the Ling. I found a picture of a ceremony on the Lionfish that showed the deck aft of the 5 inch gun was metal.  Now the Lionfish's deck is a mutant patchwork.

I would like to know how the deck plates aligned with the sub frame, and how the plates were attached to the frame. I looked at the scanned drawings of the Pompanito, but I didn't find anything to help. I don't know if the Pompanito had metal deck plates.

Any ideas where to look for info? (besides swimming up the Hackensack river and sneaking onto the Ling)

Thanx,
Drew

Rich,

You have done too good of a job putting the drawings on line!!!

I looked through them, but there are so many, but didn't notice the deck drawings amongst all the others.

Thanx a bunch,
Drew
