Re: USS Michigan camouflage experiment 1916
Looking at the boats in both pics, it does appear to say “Mich” in both pics. So this must be pre and post mod pics.
Are you saying that the wind baffles around the fighting tops are canvas? What about the searchlight platform on the forward mast? Notice the height difference there and the added platform with wind baffles under the searchlight platform in the 1st photo. Unless we are looking at a modification while she was in this paint scheme on the forward mast then these two photos are not the same ship.
The tops are the same shape, what changed is the canvas awnings around them. Not uncommon.
