so this site is full of poo http://www.texasexplorer.com/quintana.htm

ride was only about 150miles round trip from south Houston.
Well there might be a few better explanations.
(1) Perhaps the installation was built in 1941 and the gun was later upgraded.
(2) The aircraft threat in my mind would be smaller than the submarine threat and a howitzer would be very useful against a submarine that surfaces and then begins attacking the plant.
Either way something on the website is incorrect.
