In case the slickers who sell the post offices and main bridges should put some of the US Warships now here on sale, a little information is passed on to the customer, aiding in the choice of what to buy.
Torpedo boat destroyers are the niftiest of the sea, capable of 40 miles per hour, rough riding and hard for the enemy to hit. They are to be used in charging down on bigger ships, turning broadside and letting loose a raft of torpedoes.
When not used against bigger ships, the torpedo destroyers are handy to fight submarines. The destroyer's stern is equipped with a gadget for dumping overboard drums of TNT. The trick is to go fast enough after releasing the explosive so the resulting blast doesn't make a flying boat out of your destroyer.
The motor in the destroyer is the highest power of the fleet on the basis of horsepower in relation to weight.
Usually the destroyers are sold for quite a few sacks of gold, but bridge salesmen probably will mark them down within range of all.
The cruiser is a bit larger, more comfortable and has a top speed of 35 miles per hour.
Its guns are efficient, although to big for hunting. The 8-inch guns are powerful for straight shooting, while 5-inch guns are used for anything in the air. The cruisers are 590 feet long, 65 feet wide and have 107,000 horsepower, or about as much as the combined power of 1500 popular light cars.
Cruisers are equipped to carry a small town population with bunks for 670.
In contrast with the speedier ships anchored here is the US hospital ship, RELIEF, launched in 1920, only one of its type in the Navy. It has a top speed of 10 miles per hour.
