Thank you for the kind words, gentlemen!

I'll definitely try but I can't promise anything because there isn't much photographic evidence.

Yes, and according to Conway it was fitted with SSMs from a Komar class FAC. I found no pictures of it though.

Ok, it's time for another drawing. The third and fourth ships of the class - AVP-12 USS Casco and AVP-13 USS Mackinac - were built with a semi-fixed crane and 1.1" gun on the fantail:

Threads like these are the true joys of Shipbucket. I learn something everyday and the artwork is masterful!

I did have the image but in lower resolution, so yours helps. Thanks!

The rest of the seaplane tenders were built with smaller light cranes (later on the first four ships received them too). Armament was considerably increased although it differed from ship to ship. Here's AVP-21 USS Humboldt in August of 1943 with a third 5" gun and a quad 40mm Bofors aft as well as two twin 40mm Bofors amidships:

Thanks, eswube.

Here's another example of the increased armament: two 5" guns aft on the AVP-22 USS Matagorda in September 1943:
