Hello,


I'm new here and wanted to say hello to everyone. Very interesting forum.

Since I have been reading a lot of the entries, I have gained more understanding of the love of the Devil Boats and the many people who served and serviced them.

I am now building a Higgins PT with Al REoss2 plans for the MK19 tubes.
Many thanks Al. The plans were what I've been looking for some some months now.

In the past I have built sever Dumas 109's and built a few 77ft. series 1 Elcos.
I have built several for old PT boaters many years ago.I only built the hulls and nothing else.

Now that I am retired, when my wife says I am, I have a new interest in all PTs.

With the modern tech such as shapeways, it is a lot easier to build a good looking boat.

Now my older boats wouldn't hold light to the many fine modelers I read about and see their work. Has to be the best anywhere around.

When I need info I hope to be able to call on this forum for help.

Once again thanks, Bill Reese
