The 12 December 2016 issue of the WJ made its landing in our post box today. Here the WJ is always read from back to front--old boat column always being read first. That being said I dug out Grandpa's old magnifying glass and gave the whistle steam line another look.

Looking at the photo of dead on forward of Pilot House (as also appeared on this forum) I began counting window lights and am thinking that the whistle steam line might have been on the center-line, but aft of the PH with the Port Side sliding window opened just slightly. Not thru the PH and whistle itself not on top of PH.

From the left side of Starboard window there are three glass lights and then a heaver piece of (apparently) wood frame, then three more glass panes and an even thicker "window frame" or possible window frame and whistle steam line ? then an open space apparently then what could be a window frame (sliding window?) then 3 more glass lights then just to the port side of man who has hand on wheel a slighter "thicker" divison (window frame?) then two more glass panes which leads me to think, that just maybe, the aft PH window is slid slightly open.

Could the "thicker--i.e wider) piece of Starboard window frame be actually window frame AND whistle line?. The second of Keith's photos--3/4 stbd side forward to aft view appears to the whistle aft of Pilothouse.
