According to whet I have been reading the 109 had 2 skippers before Lt Kennedy was assigned to her. I have been wanting to do a gray boat so my question is if Kennedy was ordered to paint her tropical green then she must have beeen gray for the first 2 tours of duty? If so what scheme or gray was it. That simplifies my next build, I can still use the 109 decals but on a gray boat, I did Kennedy's in tropical green. Thanks---John

Sorry you feel sobad about my question. I am simply asking a question on the color of the boat before Lt Kennedy took it under his command. I am an adult and don't need this sill y child like behavior. If you don't know say so, don't mutter like my 6 year old grand son. BUCK UP BUCKO!---John

John,
No disrespect intended I'm sure. It is just that this question of 109 color has been debated and argued over and over and over again on this board and the basic conclusions were that it was grey and then it was green . That is for sure. The problem is when it comes down to specific shades.

Try searching on this board for more details. Search 109+color and hold onto your hat.

There are also specifications for the official colors and schemes that boats of a certain date and range were supposed to carry.

Shame . . . Shame . . . Shame . . . . on all of you know-nothings. You've just been schooled. He simply went to another (?????) and got the answer, that easy and that fast. Now children, see, even 20, 30 or 40 years and more of studying and researching PT boats have done none of you any good, except to be big over-grown children.

What puzzles me, is why a 3-year member has no clue to the angst that is brought about when the PT Boat and part-time PT Skipper who nearly won the war single handedly is discussed. See how I handled that without indicating the boat number or the skipper's name.

I have learned something that I wasn't aware of, and that was, that skipper was ORDERED to paint the boat "Tropical" green. I would sure love to see that documentation. Maybe this other site has the official documentation?

Probably a site that "definitively" states the boat had "a missing port depth charge and cradle and foot rail damage"...and had a mast up, too...

Oh, you must mean the site that has that color photo of the young Lt. hanging off the bow in a bosn's chair with a paint brush in his hand.

Well I guess that is just another reason why there are red flags next to ALL our names on the Washichek Operations Board. If this was an Elementary school classroom. all of our desks would be around the teachers desk and the rest of the room would be empty.

Take care.
