The colors we choose for the decking is awesome. It would be great to see how the guys here feel about the color's but I must say I am very happy with what we choose to use. When you sand and use your Magic on it Bob, I have no doubt it will look like the real deal. I am happy with the fact that this boat had a white stripe on the bow and a red one on the stern. In talking with Arthur Frongello, who was on PT-302, he insist's the boat had a blue stripe as well. I have no evidence of this at all. Your thoughts guys?

We have plenty of time I just wanted to get the hull sealed. It would make sense Red, White and Blue. But I'll be darned if I can see it in this photo. Any body elese got magic eyes? I realize you guys were beautiful back than, but it would sure help out if you guys took some detail shots.

Sorry Bob, I don't see any Blue stripe anywhere on this photo. We know about the white and red stripe, but I'll be darned if I can spot any other stripe at all.................

Any chance Arthur could be remembering a blue radome stripe or a star-and-bar aircraft recognition signal painted on the deck? . . .Just a thought. . .

Will that is a good thought, although I don't spot and star or bar in any of the PT-302 photos that I have. Bob has a shot of the radar done that I sent to him, maybe he could post it here.

The first photo here I think 302 is the fourth from the left and the dome appears dark, The 2nd the dome is dark but the more I look at it under the dome looks like a bag is tied off and it may be a bag over the dome.

I'll take a wild-ass guess and say the first five boats L-R above are the 309,313,312,302,308. What do you guys think?

The boys from PT-305 Restoration are saying the hull should be Thayer Blue on our PT-302 project. I am not 100% sure of this. Anyone want to take a stab at colors.
