Another picture of the same site.  With much more of the main deck in view.  SeeBees off-loaded the ship of whatever we brought from Da Nang, 75 miles to the north.


This is a "Swift" boat, used in the rivers and harbors.   This picture wasn't in Chu Lai, but was taken in the harbor at Da Nang, waiting to go up the river to load supplies to be taken to Chu Lai.
