US Navy's 14-inch Shell Hoist, Mark I

Charles Moore ( has provided these scans of the hoist used by the USS Texas. The original is dated 31 Aug 1915, with an 11 May 1945 update. The document was extensively cleaned after scanning. Some obliterated text was recreated using the same words from other locations. A couple of unknown words were not replaced.
