Hose hydrants

I got the hose hydrants and hose baskets made up. A combo of brass tube, rod, and pump wheels (from Bluejacket) were used. I'm also learning more than I care to know about sneaker laces(hose material) more to come, Harry

That's cool, you are lucky, must be nice to put your hands on an item before buying.
Oh...except for all that snow.

The main search light base was made up as the smaller two and the drum was from the secret stash up at Bluejacket (old lead stock) more to come, Harry

Pilot House

That "Destroyer Wheel" looks right at home in there -- like the one behind Mike Ojard in the pilot house of the Edward H (ex Army Corps of Engineers Tug "Forney"). The wheel must have been an option, as Toes' photo of the Angels Gate in his Angel's Gate thread has a wooden helm just visible through the front windows of the pilot house.

Your lights are exceptional. Believe me, I am taking plenty of notes!
