The drawing for Measure 32 Design 8T for the Andromeda
class attack cargo ships using the (C2-S-B1) maritime hull dated January 11, 1944. This drawing specifies Measure 32 vertical colors: light gray (5-L), ocean gray (5-O), and dull black (BK) with the horizontal color of deck blue (20-B). The color of the boats was not specified. This drawing has a single waterline, the load waterline. A May 9, 1944, memo from the Bureau of Ships rescinded this drawing and forwarded a replacement that extended the pattern to the light load line. That drawing has not yet been found. A BuShips speedletter on 6/3/44 also indicated that a directive was being prepared to omit boot topping and extend camouflage to bottom line of topping to meet bottom anti-fouling paint for all vessels with variable draft lines.
This is the only drawing for Design 8T that has yet been found.
