    YP-151 145k YP-151 seen pierside during her conversion for naval service, February 1942. YP-149 is moored astern. Note style of her identification number, curious (or perhaps suspicious) sailor looking forward at the photographer from behind the deckhouse, and the clear windscreen ahead of the ship’s wheel on the open bridge ahead of the enclosed pilot house. The starboard anchor is a 500-pound stockless ball type, of cast steel, but the one on the port side is a 450-pound stockless ball type, also of cast steel.

    YP-151 101k YP-151 underway on a foggy day in the Pacific Northwest, February 1942. At that point she has one .50-caliber Browning machine gun mounted aft and two depth charge tracks. The foundation is in place for the .50-caliber Browning atop the pilot house, but the gun itself has not yet been mounted.
