I have identified here what I think are components of the Navigator's Station, which sits just forward of the WC compartment. The view is from above, looking down and aft. Note in the second picture the hole in the side of the Pelorus, into which the upright rod fits.

Just on the far side of the Peloris looks like the A-7 octant. A photograph of one can be compared.

Tim, are you suggesting that paper charts would survive 75 years in salt water?

Why not?

WARNING: THIS IMAGE IS NOT APPROPRIATE FOR CHILDREN.

Fred Noonan, Navigator, lies by his Navigation table, resting on his right side with his right foot draped over the ankle on his left leg. (IMHO).

Rest In Peace.

I'm sorry, these are the kind of posts that led me to ask Marty months ago if there was a way for forum members to block specific threads from appearing in their "inbox". Mr. Mellon's positing that paper charts (assumedly unprotected) could survive in water after 75 years is, well, hardly creditable to say the least.

I have yet to see any of the Electra parts that others claim to see on the coral-encrusted reef face. I believe Ric called it "camels in the sky"...especially since the artfully annotated screenshots posted by the camel gazers are so low-def and out of focus...it's be interested to know how much bandwith this nonsense is utilizing...

You mean you can't see the birth certificate trapped under the body of the 9000 year old woman?

I keep having the tune to "The Emperor's New Clothes" go through my head. ::)

The Titanic sank a quarter century prior to the Electra.

The Titanic sank three decades prior to the Electra.

That paperwork was found inside an alligator skin handbag. Are the charts you see in a leather chart case?

I don't think it needs to be water tight, just enough of an obstruction to keep the paper from expanding by the wood fibres absorbing water.  If the paper is prevented from expanding then the fibres won't pull apart and the sheets turn to mush.

to the untrained eye the map in Tims photo looks more like a cabin window with its slight curve.
