    Really different from our Higgins eh?

    Very Good and Thank You! This is the first time I’ve seen the insides of a
    PT. I’m amazed at how much room they had in there and to think they were
    made of wood. Many of them were burned in Manila Bay during WWII. What a
    shame, but you would have to be there to understand.

    I’m surprised. It seems almost luxurious compared to what I expected. Not
    sure it would be so great under combat conditions but would make a nice
    private yacht. Thanks for sharing.

    My Dad was a Corpsman on a PT. He told many fascinating stories of war. RIP
    Dad.

    I thought they had that all locked up. I hope they open it again.

    My Dad was the radarman on PT 518. He shared some D-day stories with me.
    RIP Dad.

    Did the actual combat trim of those boats include the teak trim around the
    bulkheads? It almost looked like a typical cruising boat of the day with
    that interior. The galley looked almost the size of a WW-2 sub galley,
    except that fed many more than the crew of a PT. I liked the three round
    teak shelves at the end of the peninsula counter in the galley.

    Pretty roomy in there actually.

    there in 2 days.

  12. Tom Bux says:

    Thanx for the video & to all the volunteers that take care of our heritage.
    You folks make it happen. Those that do not learn from history are
    condemned to repeat it. (We could probably learn from the fine
    craftsmanship of the folks @ Elco)……….
