Just learned of the passing of Allen A. Kline, Jr, 87, a former PT boater. He died on Sunday, 25 March 2012 in New Smyrna Beach, Florida.

If anyone can tell me the RON and/or boat Allen served on it would be appreciated. He served in 1942-1943.

Allen was from Maryland, but lived in Florida for many years. He owned and operated several deep sea party boats running out of Ponce Inlet, Florida.

Frank: Thanks so much! I was Capt. Kline's first skipper when he enlarged his deep sea fishing fleet in the 1970's. I'm sorry I never thought to ask about his PT boat service.
