Robert Stengle had sent me this, I love it each time I watch it. Nothing better than the sound of a Packard.

Randy,
Congratulations on your engine test! It sounds great! I liked watching the smoke coming out of the exhaust. How soon will you be testing the other two?

David? Just in case you have trouble imagining how 3 running Packard PT Boat engines sound while running together you could just come to Portland and hear them on Sept 25th when we take PT658 out for one last trip this season! Last Thursday we had her up to 27 knots on all 3 engines.

Jerry, you need to get the boat up to speed and Video the inside of the engine room so people can hear and feel the power of all three engines purring that sweet sound of Music.
