Elco Naval Division

70-footers under construction.

PTC's being built--PTC 1 can be seen in the left background.

Above and below, building the cabins for the 70-footers.

Another view of a cabin frame under construction.

This photograph shows 77 and 70-foot boats on the same assembly line. PT 23 is in the left foreground, while PT 19 is to the immediate right. In the background, far left, can be seen PT 22, while PT 26 is at the far right; other 70-foot boats can be seen in the background as well. It appears the 70-footers are being gutted for modification prior to their transfer to Royal Navy hands--note the exhaust pipes and other equipment on PT 19's foredeck.
