Nice Gustavo, thank you for sharing those. I see she's got most of 2 - 40mms still mounted. Do you know of any plans for saving her?

Thanks so much for sharing the photos. What a shame to see this boat out in the elements just rotting away. I hope plans will be made soon to do something with her, at least get the boat under a tarp, or shrink wrap it.

Gustavo;
Gracias por compartir estas fotos de la Patrulla Higgins Barco Torpedo. Estoy de acuerdo con Frank, ella se ve muy triste y sola.Es una lástima!
y tener cuidado

Gustavo;
Thank you for sharing these photos of the Higgins PT Boat.
I agree with Frank, she looks very sad and alone. What a shame!
Take care,
TED

Hey Randy,
Is PT 305 still looking for some original bronze muffler castings? I know where some are! Jerry

Hi Ted

If you slightly alter the terms you have used in Spanish you will get much better results on search engines. Rather than Patrulla, use "Patrullera", and for MTB it is better anyway to use "Lancha Torpedera".

Searching in other languages brings up many new and interesting results.

Regards,

Christian.

Thank you all of you.

Yes it`s a shame to see it
I don´t know about plans to restore it.

In the my post I`ve included a link with information about "lanchas Patrulleras" in Argentina ( totally in Spanish)

Jerry,
Are you talking about the mufflers from this boat?

I'm afraid they will not share the exhaust port.

Hey Bob,
Yes, I spoke to Randy and he told me you guys already are in contact with them and got the negative response. Perhaps they may change their mind if given enough per$uasion. Who knows? but yes these are what I was referring to.
