AFMM Home Page



Friends of the LCI-713,

Our ship is looking pretty darn good, but there are several items that we still are in need of to finish up the job. If you know where we may find any of these items, please let us know or if you’d consider donating the item or cash equivalent to purcase, even better! Our purchase dollars are limited, but we try to buy if something of great desire comes available

Thank you all for you continued support of our group!

Rick Holmes, AFMM President

#2 torpedo binnacle

The #2 compass has a card (the face with the compass points) that is 6.75" in diameter.  The #1 compass (which we don't want) had a card 7.5" in diameter.





WWII Berger Fairlead

Photo of a fairlead  found at The housing is a little different than the one on the LCI and I don't know its size. The type of fairlead we want is a "deck mounted balanced head fairlead" .  Which specific model was originally installed is still unknown. Berger is now known as Smith Berger and are still in Seattle.  There current inventory suggests that our fairlead would be the size of their current models MD 610 or MD 612.
