All;
Frank had a very interesting post on his Facebook page yesterday.
Apparently, according to Dana Barlow, after the movie wrapped up, the boat was towed to “Blue Lagoon” near the 94th Aero Squadron Restaurant in Miami. After about a year some vandalizing delinquents set the boat on fire, and it burned to the waterline.
Well, it sure looks like it’s still there..

Attention: Experts here who helped me prove PT 59 was still there after USCG swore up and down it was destroyed and removed…..What are your opinions about this famous Movie Boat?? Check out the photos from Google Earth:

I have always wondered what happened to them also (I think there was three converted). I hope that is the boat there and it can somehow be salvaged...expensive no doubt but worth the effort...

Yes there was 3 boats, but according to the local, this is the 109 movie boat.
Take care,
