Here's an update of an old drawing I made of the collier, USS Jupiter.

Thanks a lot Mike. This is perfect.

Can't believe I forgot the searchlight :?

The name on the bow is actually there but the font is way too small to be represented at this scale.

The structure you circled under the bridge is not there on the plans. What is that, a leadsman's platform or something?

Are you sure the small sponson is canvas? Looks like metal to me in other pictures I have seen.

Yes, the stays on the funnel could be done better.

Not sure why you've circled the strake on the stern.

Thanks for taking the time.

Great stuff as always!

I concur that the "small sponson" looks like a steel bulwark vs. a canvas dodger platform.

From the photo this looks like a leadsman's platform to me -- not really surprising it isn't shown on the plans as this was a removable piece of equipment that could be stowed while underway.

One thing I might change would be to remove the dark grey color in the freeing ports on the main deck bulwark. These are openings to allow water to flow overboard and to pass lines through so should be shown as open on the drawing (and my assumption is the pattern of these openings is the same on the port side?) If so, the viewer would see right through to the other side in an orthographic view

Thanks, Ian. I've updated the drawing with a few alterations.

I'm planning on updating the Langley drawing which has many many inaccuracies. I thought I'd start with the Jupiter.
