Per Tracy White's site, 5-D was discontinued in July, 1941. Tim Connelly has indicated that these vessels were painted in Measure 14, and that was a popular scheme for painting small craft in. Measure 14 is 5-O with 20-B decks. Haze Gray masts. http://www.hnsa.org/resources/manuals-documents/single-topic/ship-camouflage-instructions/
