Response to Question for shaft
Schematic, by Jeff Boat, Jeffersonville, Indiana
This schematic shows 3 forward ballast tanks on starboard side and 3 ballast tanks port side, starting at the bow emergency fire pump and going back aprox. mid ship.
It then shows bal/dies (?) 2 more sections back, port and starboard.
In the middle of these bal/dies (?) are the two diesel ballasts aprox. mid ship and one ballast tank toward the bow from the diesel ballasts.
The schmatic then shows 4 ballast tanks on the outside of the aux. engine room and the main engine room, port and starboard.
According to this schematic, there are 13 ballast tanks including the bal/dies (?) plus two Diesel ballast tanks.
This is where I obtained my information regarding ballast tanks, bow to stern. Actually, according to the schematic, they don't go all the way back to the stern but aprox 65% or so.
Not to argue but simply going by the schmatic which may or may not be the same model of LST as the LST 325.
