Today it's pouring rain out, something that, when I'm posting subchaser documents, makes me think of what life on board these boats must have been like: wet all the time below decks, and wet most of the time on deck. This, of course, is why in so many chaser photos we see anything and everything hanging out to dry, from clothing to bedding.
You can see an example of this in the photo of SC 346 just posted, mattresses forward, one hung over the anchor davit, and clothes strung aft. Sunny days must have been especially appreciated.
