These appeared yesterday on Facebook, many have seen them already but I'll repost them here anyway... poster's grandfather took the 35mm shots in color.

Note the intentional bare spots on the gunwale rub rails, and the white or gray on the chine rub rails. The color shots of PT-32 in NY harbor also show bare wood on the rails, I always thought it was the result of careless docking. Nope!

Pat;
Damn! I wish I thought to contact you, these shots of 70’ers ant Bayfront Park, Miami are exquisite!!! Frank and I just finished collecting photos for an upcoming book on PT Bases.
Miami photos are rare, and here are two Kodachrome masterpieces!
Take care,
TED
