Hi All,

Does anyone have any info on the Pearl City Yacht Club? I was wondering if anything is left of the facilities used during the war, as well getting a pointer to the actual location on a map.

I will be headed to Pearl Harbor on business and would love to see area, especially with my interest in Ron 26.

Cheers,
Andy

Andy;
PT HQ for RON 1, RON 17, and RON 26, Pearl City Yacht Club is located at Rainbow Marina, Rainbow Bay Marina is operated by the Morale Welfare and Recreation (MWR) department at Pearl Harbor Naval Station.
here is the website:

Here is a video of PT 21 docking in front of PT 28 RON 1 Pearl : http://www.criticalpast.com/video/65675040959_motor-torpedo-boats_sailors-on-boat_boat-approaches-dock_United-States-flag1942L


enjoy your trip, I will be heading out there hopefully later this summer to visit USS Missouri, my Dad's ship.
Take care,
TED

Thanks Ted,

Do you know where the old pier and building stood?

I looked around on Google Earth and didn't see anything. I remember having lunch years ago at Schooners and I've been down at the CPF boathouse.

Andy:
This video tells exactly where it was: in Middle Loch at the end of Lankila Ave. The old pre-war Yacht club dock is still there on Google Earth. This club was demolished after the war.
