Hi, all you need to do is go to hazegray.org and check out the Dictionary of American Naval Fighting Ships.  Each ship in the harbor has an entry and each entry mentions the class of the ship.  Just a matter of a little mouse clicking.

G'Luck,

One omission and one correction.
The correction: AR-4 was the USS Vestal, not Vestral.

The ommision:
YT-146 Hoga, a tug that helped fight fires and rescue ships and swimmers. More information here.

Lastly, the Palm Springs Air Museum has a 1/700th diorama of most of Pearl Harbor. I was there a couple months ago and have a picture posted here

If I may nitpick, they missed the Vestal. That may be because there was no model available at the time however. It's still very impressive.

Let's see what this does...

Good Luck,

It's rarely shown on PH maps.

That's true; it seems to only be indicated on about half of the harbor drawings.   The BALTIMORE was anchored alongside the USS ALLEN (DD-66)and the USS CHEW (DD-106) at the north end of Ford Island, in the area between the USS NEVADA and the USS SOLACE.
I am continually amazed at the lack of accuracy in so many of the published texts on Pearl Harbor; this is especially so when listing the ships present.
I hope that helps,

Brian O'Connor
