Hello Shipmates!
Several people in the past have asked me to video the engine room of the PT658 as well as how to start the engines. I took care of this on Thursday and Friday so now you can watch these 5 videos on You Tube and you will know how to start up the Packard V12 engines on board a real WW2 PT Boat! I hope you like them. Please leave a comment if you do. Thanks Jerry

Watch them in the order listed below.
