|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.
