The National Archives in College Park, MD, was the final repository for all the plans associated with the USS WOLVERINE (IX-64). When conversion from the SS SEEANDBEE was complete the American Ship Building Company forwarded all their plans. I have photocopies of the cover letters. These included the original plans for the SEEANDBEE, such as those featured in the Maritime Review article. At one point the plans were microfilmed and the original drawings disposed of (or at least most of the original drawings, some still remain). You can purchase a copy of the microfilm for a (what I consider) reasonable price. The outboard profile is included. Reel 32144-2 The outboard profile is drawing 525661. By the time it was microfilmed it was pretty beat-up, patched, and a bit wrinkly. Also included are many drawings of the interior layout, frames, lines, shell expansion, engine, boilers, wheels, etc. Doug Wilde
