Try reading "PT 105" by Dick Keresey. I'm sure you can get it at your local library. Great book.

Also do a Google search for PT 105 images. There are several out there.

Your right it was like casting a big net hoping something jumped in,

The book reference from Drew is a good starting place. I want to try to find crew information, records, logs, pictures anything that will give me a better insite into the history behind the boat and crew. When I build a ship I always try to learn as much as I can, to do the build right However The Pt Boat world is new to me so very much a novice here.
again thanks

Grady,

Check out the NavSource online website, click on Patrol Craft, then PT Boats, then click on the PT 105 index entry. There a five photos of the 105 running at sea off the East Coast in 1942, as well as a short text history of the boat.

As I mentioned before, check Google images for additional pictures -- there's a great shot out there somewhere of the 105 refueling at sea on a Panama-Galapagos Islands run before deploying to the South Pacific.

If you can't find that one, send me your email and I'll send it to you. Mine is: rac701@msn.com .

Hi Grady,
Welcome. I had some conversation with Mr. Keresey about his boat. What exactly are you interested in?

David thanks for responding, so far Ive gotten some great information, several great pictures, I have ordered Mr. Kereseyss book, and received a template for the towing bitt unique to the 105 boat. Still looking for crew information which hopefully will lead to more Insite on the daily wartime operations, little things unique to the 105 boat, as stated before being a PT boat novice and being honest Im not totally sure about exactly what Im looking for, However each bit of info no matter how small or seemingly trivial is a great help pointing me in the right direction.
