Napalm bomb, need ID.


Recommended Posts

This pontoon boat appears to have been made from two Napalm Bombs. The Bulletpicker site refers to a TM, but the length does not match up.


https://bulletpicker.com/pdf/TM 9-1325-200, Bombs and Bomb Components.pdf#page=73


The bomb measures 174” long, the closest napalm bomb that matches in appearance ( BLU-1B) states it is 130” long, but “considerable size differences are found in the BLU-1 series. “


The “ boat” is sitting on the shore of Lake Wydowy  ( ?) , on the Georgia/ Alabama border.


All thoughts appreciated

Could they be drop tanks?  It looks like the second line of the label says, "if used as ferry tank follow..." and the rest is unreadable.  Would a Napalm Bomb ever be used as a ferry tank?
