Hello shipmates.
Last September 2019 the Smithsonian Channel came aboard PT658 in Portland OR and rode the boat during the filming of an episode of their new series. Combat Ships Episode 2: Stealth. They just put it on the air and it may also be seen on the Discovery Channel. Be sure to check it out. I will try and post a link so you can get a Preview of the Episode here.

Here is a link to webpage of the program. Included is a short video and info on watching.

Thanks Jerry

Nice Jerry! This will be great PR. I hope you guys are weathering the virus lockdown OK.

I watched the about 4 minute video preview, great to see that the 658 was the star of much of it. I look forward to seeing the show.

If you have Charter Spectrum it is available on demand on the Smithsonian channel if you have a higher level package than I do.

Hi Jerry,
I happened to catch that one morning doing my daily workout. Really enjoyed the episode.
