Fishing kit?

Recommended Posts

Then what you have is the large apron type fishing kit designed to be used with lifeboats and life rafts (non-pneumatic types). These were procured by the US Navy (Bureau of Ships), Army Transportation Corps and Merchant Marine (USCG Approved). Introduced in 1943 and sealed in cans. Each of the three procurements had differently marked cans but the apron or kit itself was the exact same. These are common and no real value unless complete and condition, prices seem to be all over the place really. Best thing to do is a completed listing search on ebay

This is a Merchant Marine kit. Important here not to read into the color too much all aprons are of HBT and were available through multiple suppliers to at least 3 different primary contractors for the large fishing kit.
