Allright the next area I need help with is the area between Anton and Bruno turrets. From a drawing I have:

I have some of the tems done, but there are three or four things in there that I have no references for. I am hoping someone here might have something.

My guess is that they are ventilation intakes. I probably have pictures of them somewhere in my collection. If I find a picture, I will scan it an e-mail it to you.

I would have thought an odd place for air intakes - wouldn't there be an accumulation of soot, dust and other particulates, even when the ship isn't in action?

I am thinking more of something like a whole house fan. Ours is in the highest center point of the house and sucks all the air in the house out while drawing fresh air in through the windows. I would think this would be an ideal spot for fans as not only would it provide fresh air and a breeze, but the blowing air would be forced downward onto the deck (because it has to be shielded against the ocean and rain) and keep it clean.
