Especially when it's 40 degrees outside and raining. They build it a few years ago. When the vets originally started to restore her, she sat outside on a barge, under a tarp.

In the late war, they replaced the tubes with roll off, mark 13s. But by the end off the War, the PTs were maining hunting Japanese supply barges, too small for torps.

Hi buddy!

Not sure if you've been down in the last couple of weeks but we have been applying the MS31-20 camouflage to the hull. Its looking awesome and you are going to be blown away when you see it.







I did some checking as soon as I learned we were going to paint the boat in this color and Randy Short at Snyder and Short Enterprises kindly provided us with color chips so we could proceed with having the paint mixed to spec's. Hope to see ya down there soon. I should be at the reserve center on Monday and Thursday this week.

Sorry to say that I walked off the boat this morning and am not likely to be back any time soon.

Don't want to go into any details but hope we can catch up some time over a cup of coffee or something.

Looks like a different boat, McBee - nicely done! Want to come on up to Baltimore for awhile and help me with this lil submarine thing I got here?

Man, the PT looks like pleasure boat. The men look like women. Just what kind of restoration was done.


J/K...she looks awesome!
