My USN Gunnery manual (I have only one of the two volumes) indicates that the Mk 51 directors could be switched as far as the mounts they controlled. This makes sense as a particular director might be put out of service. How the parallax issues were or were not corrected fro in this system, I do not know.




The Mk51 has no range adjustement. It's set to a fixed range. This should make the parallax adjustement considerably easier.

But they could still be transferred to direct other mounts. A very sophisticated system!

The attached photo shows a boat showed on missouri’s Quarterdeck during the time when she operated the kingfisher, which would have been before April 1945. From the flat sheer, pointed bow and bumper all around, this looks like a 35 foot float plane rearming boat. Since no crane or any davit can reach it at this location, it must be mounted on some roller cradle that can be moved, and secured to tie downs on deck.

Does anyone know if she still carried this boat in August 1945?
