PT boats typically had 2 enclosed gun tubs with twin .50's. A twin .50 after a few minutes sustained firing would create a small mountain of empty cartridges which would fill the gun tub. Were empties routed so they would exit the tub, or, if they accumulated in the tub, was there a door, or port, at the bottom of the gun tub to clear them out?
