I have had these photos of Russ so I scanned them, sent them to my good friend Dick who has posted them here. I hope they will provide great memories for Russ and other's who served with Ron 12.

Enjoy,
Frank

Great photos!

Russ, is that a fold-down seat and stand along the inside of the cockpit (right behind your right arm, in that shot of you at the wheel)?

Drew, I really do not recall any fold down seat being on the boat. However, if you look at the seat in question, it looks like your knees would be against the wheel if it was lowered.
I just don't ever seeing sitting at the wheel.
Do you see it as I see it ??

Fishing wasn't so hot. We used hand grenades to fish with.

Russ, I checked a framing plan but it didn't show the object, But this shot has a good view, looks like it is a seat: http://www.pt171.org/PT171/FrankKassay/target25.html.

Russ, it could have been removed. It looks like it hangs on a horizontal plank and moveable. The 171 shot seems to have it farther back. I've no real clue though. Maybe someone else can shed some light.
