how I love that netmarin site! and this discussion. Maybe the "cammo" is just to confuse. Sailor on watch on a destroyer: -Hey! What are those bananas floting in mid air?:D
The limber holes: that's a great detail. Never noticed before!
Just looking at that last pic I couldn't help noticing the similarity of the aft deck with that from british subs (Valiant, Churchill, etc.)
