Salvage Vessels. The boat, оutfitting, аnchors, the blowers, comforts, страница 2

Let’s dream about fishing, sunbathing, pulling up on a sand bank, turning on the radio, and having a picnic.  All that is possible with our salvage boat. We’ve done it many times. When the window of salvage weather disappears, you can drop the blower off the stern and unpack the fishing rods. The boat is shallow enough to run it up on rather sand bank, or swing at anchor in shallow water. The last time I turned my head, someone brought a portable television on board. It must have been football season.


Salvage craft for long distance targets in deeper water are boats for speculation at another time.

Notes: This list does not include auxiliary types that consisted entirely of experimental combatants, conversions from major combatants, or preliminary designations for LSTs. These types include AB, ACV, AGDE, AGEH, AGFF, AGMR, APD, APY, ATL, AVD, AVG, AVT (ex CVL and CVS), AVT (ex CVT), BACV, BAVG, and the auxiliary submarine types AGSS, AOSS, APS, APSS, ASSA, ASSP, and IXSS. It also does not include types for which no hull numbers were assigned. It does include minelayers, which were sometimes classified as combatants but which otherwise resembled auxiliary types. The early LSVs are included because of their derivation from AN and CM designs and their contribution to the later LSV and AKR types.

The less-than character (<) is used in armament data to indicate that the number of small guns of the type specified (usually 20mm) increased during a period during which the larger armament shown remained constant. For example, the entry 4-5”/38 4<9-20mm indicates that the number of 20mm guns increased during the period when the larger armament consisted of 4-5” guns. (Similarly, the greater-than character > is used to show a decrease.) When used for more than one ship, the < character can instead indicate a range (in the example, between 4 and 9 20mm guns on the various ships).
