There's is a picture of pt-305 on navsource that shows the boat in camouflage.
I was wondering what color is was as well as the rest of the pattern, because the picture cuts off half way across the boat so I wasn't sure.
Pictures or info would be appreciated.

Still want to know your real name
Here are some I found, it seems they were painted this way at the factory and when transported to the front were often repainted a different scheme. Hope this helps.

This is Measure 31 5/P. The lighter color was initially OCEAN GREEN (5OG) which was replaced with MTB GREEN. The darker color is NAVY GREEN (5NG) on vertical surfaces, and DECK GREEN (20G) on horizontal surfaces. Do a search for this Measure and you'll come up with some drawings showing the basic pattern.

Thank for the pictures, it makes me wonder if the restored pt-305 will ever carry this scheme.
oh and by the way Jerry, my names Nic.

I also haven't been on a pt as of yet, though I am a war buff and since I live relatively close to pt-309, I'll have to go up to Fredericksburg some time and check it out.
If I lived close to Oregon I would definitely have checked out pt-658.
It is a wonderfully restored boat, now all we need is a working elco.
