The Design 32/13T drawing dated June 2, 1944, for the Cimmaron class fleet oilers using T3 type maritime hulls. The vertical colors were dull black (BK), ocean gray (5-O) and light gray (5-L) with deck blue (20-B) for the horizontal surfaces. This drawing also shows two waterlines.

The earliest drawing of Design 13T was on May 17, 1944, for the General G. O. Squier class of transports. On June 2, 1944, Design 13T was redrawn for the Cimmaron class fleet oilers as shown above.
