Type VIIC Bow Stringer III

Postby QuarterdeckToph » Fri Dec 16, 2011 7:40 pm

Odd question of the day...
From a skeletal point of view, what does the Bow Stringer III reportedly located between "B" and "C" decks look like? Also, do the gusset plates in this section stretch hull wall to hull wall, or are they triangular and only ensure that the central longitudinal frame member remain vertical? Where, between decks "B" and "C" is this fitted? Was it above, in mid-line, or below the level of the oval limber holes that are between the tube doors?



Question mark II - does the collision bulkhead at the aft end of the chain locker at frame 101 go from keel up all the way to the bottom of Deck "E" (presumably with limber holes?) or is it just partial support/reenforcent for the fwd dive plane/skeg area?

OK - those are decent Friday questions!
