The newly completed PCE-893. Note the crease built into the false funnel for stowage of the boat boom and the porthole in the side of its sonar hut, forward of the British-style bridge. Pipe rails around the single 40mm guns aft indicate that they were not director-controlled; they did not have cutout cams to keep them from firing into the ship
