"Submarine Rescue Vessel (A.S.R.) - Design Study "B""


Preliminary design plan prepared for the General Board during the process that produced the Chanticleer (ASR-7) class.
This plan, dated 17 October 1940, depicts a relatively large, 1750-ton (light displacement) 300-foot (between perpendiculars), design that appears to be based on that of the Barnegat (AVP-10) class small seaplane tenders.
Scale of the original drawings is 1/16" = 1'.

The original plan is in the 1939-1944 "Spring Styles Book" held by the Naval Historical Center.
