I received an email from Jerry Gilmartin asking to please list a couple of our favorites websites onto the "Links" page. As I did, but it also reminded me that I've been lax and meaning to post this message requesting website link info.

If anyone has or knows of an activate PT Boat or PT Boat relates website not on our links page ( http://www.ptboats.org/13-0-05-links.html , please post the name and website link in a message board reply or email me. Also any great modeling source sites for boat models and part components.

Does anyone know the status or new location of the following websites:

1.) Pat Matthews, WWII Ads
2.) Hoyt's Haven - The PT Boat Page

If their websites are gone and you know how to contact them, please have them contact me.

Thanks,
Dick . . . .

Hi Dick,
Thanks for responding so quickly and professionally to my request. I see you also posted another really pertinent link to this website. It is an e-copy of the PT Boat Bible, "At Close Quarters" by Robert Bulkely. It is on the excellent Hyperwar website.

Thanks Jerry PT658 Portland OR

Two "Crash" boat sites to add.

All,

Years back at a PT boat reunion in Edison NJ (Mid 70's?) had the pleasure of meeting a few PT boaters. As a kid of 17 in the Sea Scouts, still one of my fondest memories.
One fellow I talked to asked me about our 63' Crash boat and he called it a
'Pocket PT'. Has anyone ever heard of this term?

I did build a model of our boat in 1/16 scale, have dug it out of the attic and hope to RC after a long yard period.

The models and displays on this site are nothing short of fantastic!
They have given me the builders desire.

Glenn
