Hi,

I've been doing internet research on USN battleship BB 10 Maine for about 6 months. I've looked at several "decent" pictures of turrets for ships of that era. They all have what I learned today is called an "apron" that seals the barbette from water.
What I would really like to see is a clear technical drawing/exploded view of this device. More important would be to see one of those "clamps" close enough to view detail.

I've been searching for pics of the ACR-10 thru -13 Tennessee class armored cruisers.

I've run across a few pics that show the turret seal devices. Two are in the Wikipedia article "USS Washington (ACR-11)".

I have another with an overhead view, but it will take a while to track down the source.

Have you run across any pics for the USN boat cradles?

Look at the entry in NavWeaps.com for the USN 10" guns; there is a nice overhaed view of the turret, barbette, and seal hardware.

Also, if you go to Flickr, there is a high oblique shot in the Library of Congress Bain collection: LC-B2-22271-10.
