I was just curious how much if any activity was made by PT BOATS on the HUDSON RIVER. Somewhere (and I might have it myself) I saw a photo of three boats on the Hudson.

Frank;
The only activity that I know of is when the 7 boats(PT 486,487,545, 557,558, and 559) went to Chicago for a war bond tour in 1945. Check out Milt's photos at www.williammaloney.com.
however, I have now heard( no actual photos or paperwork yet to confirm this) of a second trip up there by RON 42 boats which included PT 615 now in Kingston, NY. We will see about this. Do you havge any photos of RON 42 boats(615 esp.)?
Take care,
TED

During the 1945 football season the Melville team, coached by Mike Holovak, made the trip from Melville to West Point by PT boat.

QM and Frank;
Hmmm I wonder if the boat was RON 42's PT 615, since kingston is only 40 or so miles by water from West Point?

Wen have 615's log from 1945.

had some details of 615's trip to Detroit from the Brooklyn Navy yard. It shows an overnight stay in Kingston due to weather conditions (on the return trip)

QM and Frank;
See I guessed correctly. Looking at Tom's post, PT 615 with 7 other RON 42 boats went to West Point on October 20, 1945, on thier way up to Chicago(i guess) for another bond tour function. I suppose this is when the Melville Football team was dropped off.
Take care,
TED
