Welded torpedo tubes

hi Guys,

We are looking into the possibility that the type IX we are working on had its torpedo tubes welded shut and converted to carrying cargo. Could anyone answer some questions for me please?

1. Was it just IXD1s that had the tubes welded or was it some D2s as well?
2. Did they weld the external bow doors shut, or was it just the tube doors themselves?

Mike
