This is the drawing for Design 1F for the Alkaid class “Liberty” cargo ships of (EC2-S-C1) maritime hull dated January 29, 1944. The open measure colors were shown, but would have been dull black (BK), ocean gray (5-O) and light gray (5-L) for Measure 32 or navy blue (5-N), haze gray (5-H) and pale gray (5-P) for Measure 33.

The first drawing for Design 1F was for “Liberty” style cargo ships using feathered edges was attached to the March 1943 supplement to SHIPS-2. On January 29, 1944, Design 1F was redrawn using “open” measure colors and with solid edges for the Alkaid class “Liberty” style cargo ships as above.
