This is probably old info for most of you guys, but for the new members such as myself I found this site to be very interesting.
It includes a panaramic view of a Higgins boat and a interactive PT Boat game.
Cut and paste the link below to your browser and let me know what you think.

Hi there.

The 3D tour of the Higgins boat and the PT boat game are neat.

And to think, that boat was supposed to have been operational, until the Museum grabbed it from those guys who put their heart and soul into the restoration............

Frank J Andruss Sr,
Your reply seems to indicate you know some of the history behind this boat.
If so, could you share it with us. You referred to the boat being functional.
I noticed that the engines had been removed for the panaramic tour.
