I thought I should get this issue off, in between snow storms. This winter it seems as if they come every few days.
This month a pair of post-war chaser models is posted to the Showcase section, and there is one more addition to the Hull Numbers Collection -- which is getting very close to a rounding-error away from the point of showing 60% of all chaser hulls. Another one or two should do it.
Those of you up in the cold climate areas, enjoy the snow! There's still a lot of winter left.

Added to the Hull Numbers Collection is a nice shot of SC 24, flying the homeward bound pennant. This chaser served in the Atlantic Fleet.
Pat Lane submitted photos of two chaser models, depicting post-war arrangements. One shows a chaser sometime shortly after the war, still armed, but without the ASW equipment such as the bearing indicator and the depth charge racks. The other shows a common non-military post-war use, a chaser converted to a private yacht.
