Well guys, while I have been filming for the next mission, I decided to sneak in a photo inspired by the cover photo of Bridge's book "First-Up" and the outstanding crew of the 157 boat. After I got home and downloaded the some 400 hundred photos, I realized that I should have made a T-shirt for that guy in the center and taken the binoculars off the XC and put them on him. But you get the idea.

Carry on

Gang . . .

Take a minute and click the link below, to Photobucket:

http://s130.photobucket.com/user/ptboats/media/Roy%20Forbes/Mastdown.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0

If you click the little magnifying image in the lower right corner a couple of times (First on the displayed image, then on the pop-out image) you'll get to very large detailed view of the above photo, give it a try. It great to see it clear and large ! ! !

Roy;
That enlargement looks really awesome, It gave me a cool idea, now if we send you photos of ourselves, you can photoshop our faces on the crew figures!
Take care,
TED

Now that would be cool, it is as close as one could get to being a PT Crew Member. I like that idea Ted.

Now that is one of the funniest ideas I have had heard in a while guys. Dick, after we send you our photos, you must post the updated crew photo. I have Photoshop Elements but I have not installed it yet and I don't even know how to use it. I'm feeling a bit over whelmed here with all the on-going projects. My head shot will be on the way forthwith.

Here is the original color version. This might be better for the crew photo.

Hold on there Frank! What if you just showed up and went underway on the PT658? Wouldnt that count as being a crew member on a PT Boat? Jerry

Jerry, if I had good knees, and wasn't so scared to fly, you bet it would count. In fact you guys would have a hard time getting me to leave........
