Congratulations - - - Capt’n Bob

Longtime forum member, an original member of the PT 305 restoration crew and since its restoration completion, the XO on the PT 305, has graduated to Captain Wade. He just recently received Merchant Mariner Credentials as a 100-ton Master and is now a PT Boat Captain ! ! ! !

As he just posted on his Facebook page - “Well it is official, I received my credentials for 100 ton Master. I am now one of the Captains for PT 305. So screw cancer, you ain’t slowing me down. Thanks to everyone's encouragement and support. But thanks most of all to my wife Paige, for keeping me alive and supporting me through this endeavor”.

Below are some photos I stole from his Facebook:

Wow Bob!
Great job and awesome perseverance too! I am hoping that you can make it out to Portland this summer and we can let you drive the PT658 as well. How cool would that be? Not many people can say they have driven 2 different PT Boats.
