Jerry,
Thanks for the photos. I have noticed with the photos that I have, that some show the light and jackstaff and some just show a jackstaff only. I have seen this in the same boat. I wonder if they removed bowlight at some time. That second picture as the 302 has the 20mm in the wrong place for that boat. Are you sure this is not an earlier boat? It is obviously a Med boat with the yellow triangle.

Hi Bob,
Yes I am not sure it is PT302 it may be a RON15 boat as well. Sorry for the confusion. Jerry

Al, we have the bow cap, just looking for detailed info on the bow light.


In the following photo it shows the bow light with removable jackstaff. 302


Heres a shot of the 305 without light, jackstaff only


By the way we have completed the forward sheers ( thats where the deck meets the side hull). They have been scarfed in place. We have also completed the forward chines (thats where the side hul meets the bottom hull) Saturday one side was scarfed in place, ran out of time for starboard side. The stem was removed, also the knee and forefoot. This will all be reasembled this Saturday and glued and bolted into place permanently. Keel, chines, stringers and sheers will be complete stem to stern. Deck ribs (beams) and side hull ribs are are complete from aft forward to at least frame 20. Hull ribs to forward engineroom bulkhead ( 30 ). Thanks for the help guys. Its the small details that will really make a difference.

I don't know if this will help but the light for PT 71 - 94 looks a lot like the one in the image you posted. If it helps, let me know if you want a larger version so you can read the numbers:
