I recently had the opportunity to visit the restoration project of the Higgins PT-305. It is located across the street from the D-Day WWII Museum on Andrew Higgins ave. This boat is a long way from done, but I was able to view it in the warehouse that it is being worked on. The poor stripped down boat makes it easier to see how the hull was constructed.

For those of you that don't know me, I'm Ed Pernick. Harv Zimmerman is my Dad and he built Elco boats then joined up and was on Base 11 in the Solomon's. He's been on the board for years and I'm enjoying the privilege to be serving for the last 3 years.

Copy this link below and paste it to your address bar for a few pictures.

Hope you all enjoy it.

This should be the link to the pictures I have posted on Facebook.
Sorry if you had trouble finding it with the other address listed.

Thanks again,
Ed

Hi Ed,
I must be doing something wrong, but all I see when I cut and paste the link you posted in your 2nd post is a photo of a sunset. I do not wish to join facebook at this time. Is there any way I could see these pictures of PT305? Jerry

A Facebook page covering the 305 is there for anyone to follow the progress. You are Abe to join, currently there is about 86 members. You can find it by searching PT-305 "USS Sudden Jerk".

Here are two hyper links:

I think this is the one Bob (above) is talking about?
The Facebook "Groups" page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/PT305/

A regular Facebook page different from above: https://www.facebook.com/Pt305Restoration

I appreciate you posting the URL. BTW, the museum will hold a milestone ceremony this Saturday, then we will be able to post the latest photos of PT-305.
