PT Boat members. I am a member of the Disabled American Veterans Chapter #133 in Fort Lauderdale, Fl. We raise money through various fund raising efforts and donate 100% to Disabled Veterans and their families.We want to raise public awareness and money for the cause of our Wounded Warriors. The Chapter is entering a decorated boat in the Christmas Boat Parade which will be viewed by hundreds of thousands on the Intercoastal and on National television and newspapers.
We would like to have a military vessel, such as a P.T. boat, LCU, LCM or other craft. If you can help us ,we will decorate it and enter it in the Parade and top off the tank!!
Thanks for your time,
Don Rickard

Hello Don!

Your best best as far as PT Boat floating stock is PT728, which is a US built-for-Russia lend-lease boat. It has been modified to resemble an ELCO boat and is currently based out of Kingston, NY. She is currently on a ride-giving tour of the Northeast. Here is her contact information, good luck!
