Pearl Harbor's 150,000 Barrel Fuel Storage Tanks
I was looking for their details in the "Upper Tank Farm" section where they were first built in 1927 but didn't the SeaBees move this one in 1944 ... damn.
Fuel Tank #43 became instead "Fuel Tank #3, Structure S88" over in the Pearl City Fuel Annex as detailed at

My previous assumption of a 34' height was mistaken as 40' high is listed. This resulted in only a 160' diameter rather than the 180' which I had calculated
What will no doubt upset OpanaPointer is "In 1944, the original cone shaped roof was removed and a Horton floating roof was installed by the Chicago Bridge and Iron Company."
which proves that yet again, Alan Zimm DECEIVED his readers, when he assumed floating roofs for his "Operational Research" based analysis of the Japanese air attacks at Pearl Harbor on Dec.7'41.
