Hi all! Long time lover of vintage fans, now with a garage / mancave, I have someplace to keep them. I found this fan at a Boston area estate sale. The woman said her father took it off a WWII era destroyer during a refit. I've never seen one like it. The ID plate says it's a 6FC-110 Cabin Fan made by Sutton Mfg. The bracket and frame appear to be heavy duty cast aluminum and it's powered by a Dayton 5k-050 3000 RPM motor. It works and it is STRONG! Just a really cool piece, but I can't find any reference to it online.
Has anyone else ever seen one? Especially if you were in the Navy.

Thanks in advance!
