I thought I would post this wonderful replica of the Elco War Worker sign that was tacked onto the podium during the PT-103 Ceremonies. The sign was hand painted by my friend Stan Pienkowski and is exactly as the original was back in the day. The Higgins sign was also done by Stan but the Ron emblems are original and came from Elco

Thanks guys I think the signs are wonderful as well. The 77 footer is an exact replica and a scratch built model of PT-61. I had Stan Pienkowski make this for me to honor her skipper Ken Prescott. The Ron emblems are wonderful to have and were donated by Elco Employee Charles Waller
