I ran across these life magazine images, click them for a larger version. There's a lot of great photos in this google/life collaboration:

Great photos , Jeff!

I just learned my cousin served on PT 9 in it's brief existance. This was the Scott-Paine boat.

GREAT PHOTOS JEFF. THESE ARE THE FIRST PHOTOS OF THE PHILIPPINE ARMY OFFSHORE PATROL BOATS (Q-111, Q-112 + Q-113) I'VE FOUND ANYWHERE. STRANGE LITTLE BOATS BASED ON THE WWI BRITISH THORYCRAFT 55-FOOTERS. SOME GREAT CLOSE-UP SHOTS FROM 1941. THANKS AGAIN.

Cool Robert, I bet that was a surprise to find out after all these years.

You're very welcome Ross, the cockpit sure looks cozy. You probably saw these but here's some images of the Q boats for those interested:
