Drawing

This is the drawing for Measure 32 Design 4T for the Haskell class of attack transports using the (VC2-S-AP5) maritime hull dated August 1, 1944. The Measure 32 vertical colors were dull black (BK), ocean gray (5-O) and light gray (5-L) with deck blue (20-B) for the horizontal color. The landing boat colors were specified to be haze gray (5-H). This drawing also included two waterlines. This drawing was also mislabeled APA-110 vice APA-117.

The first Design 4T drawing was for USS Harris (APA-2) on January 11, 1944, as above. Design 4T was then drawn for the Harry Lee class of attack transports on March 9, 1944. Then 4T was drawn for USS Boreas (AF-8) on April 5, 1944, and on April 7 for USS President Polk (AP-103) a (C3A-P&C) maritime hull. On July 5, 1944, Design 4T was issued for the Sumter class of attack transports using a (C2-S-E1) maritime hull and again on August 1, 1944, for the Haskell class attack transports with (VC2-S-AP5) maritime hulls.
