At one point, a MK56 gun mount was (incorrectly) mounted on PT 617, This mount was fitted to the PBR MK2 during Nam and looked nothing like the correct MK17 mount. A group is restoring a MK2 and is looking for this unit. Anyone know if it is still on 617 or where it is?

My wife and I took a private tour of PT 617 back in March 2022. The mount is located on the starboard side of the boat near the stern against the wall.

Travis ;
Now that Don Shannon is no longer at Battleship Cove, it’s hard to get updates. Do you have more photos of your visit you can post?
Take care,
TED

Also stopped at Melville RI, I found the plaque but the torpedo and gun were missing next to it. I made PT Boats Inc aware of the situation. Does anyone know what might have happened to the torpedo and gun that were on display??
