Just by chance I was scanning EBAY and came across a SQUADRON SIGNAL book that I had not seen before. Called PT BOATS in ACTION it was done by a DAVID DOYLE, and I would assume it has just came out. Have any of you guys bought the book or have seen it?

Probably that "ON DECK" series "Elco 80-footer" (or something like that) that Doyle did for Squadron. Mostly pics of the Fall River boat.

It's actually a very nice book. It's an excellent combination of drawings, WWII photos (many in color), and as Will said photos of the 617 boat on display at Battleship Cove. Most of the 617 photos are images most visitors would not see including the interior. If you're building out the interior of a 80' this is a must have book. I picked up a copy for myself after seeing Denny's.

No guys,

Squadron re-released the PT BOATS IN ACTION book after I left them, Mr. Doyle was tagged to do it I'm guessing.

I have my copy in front of me - It is produced by Squadron Signal - ISBN 978-0-89747-591-4 copyright 2009. It is item number 5605 ELCO 80-Foot PT Boat from the On Deck Color Series and is the work of David Doyle. It is 80 pages in length and probably 60% color photographs. I will agree with David that if you are building an interior it is a must have. Lots of 617 Boat shots both inside and out (color) and then a number of very crisp interior shots from PT Boats Inc. I refer to mine frequently and would highly recommend it no matter what your interest in the Boats are.

Jerry, Will and David,

The book Frank's asking about here is PT BOATS IN ACTION, their number 4034.

This is a re-release of my original 1994 book but when Squadron started to give me grief over what they wanted in it, I begged off of the project and, obviously, they asked Mr. Doyle to do the new version.
