  • Looking for US 627 Class Snorkel mast Picture/Drawing's

    Other than remembering seeing the little indicator stick through the scope at PD, verifying the head valve actually being open, my memory is too rusty for the rest of the details. After all it's been almost 40 years!!
    Any closup photos or detail drawings appreciated!

    I might have shots of the WEBSTERS head-valve. It's a 616 class boat, but I think they were pretty much the same design.

      Appreciate it Dave. If I remember what I was told back then, most differences were internal anyway. I think we were made from the get go for the A3's specifically .

          Those pictures are not showing up.
          If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

                  Nothing to do with it, but what the heck as I have a love affair with the 41 for Freedom. Her lines, the cut of her sail, her control surfaces, in in my eye makes for a truly "American" Boat!
                  But then again I am biased, proudly so.
