The Photo Links have been repaired.
The word "IMAGE" was misspelled, a couple missing closing brackets.

Here are a couple more images of the CPB boats for the RNN.

TM34
TM28

TM32, 35, 36, 37 became PT 368, 369, 370, 371 respectively.

In the photo collection at HQ are a number of photos of the four PTs taken by LCDR Edwin Polk. Most are closeups, but interesting. Maybe someone can take a look.

A question,

On the boat with the shark mouth motif and the # 29 boat; are those fake tubes? I don't see the charge canister on the top of them?

Most likely dummy torpedoes used for trial runs. The 29 boat certainly has them, I could not get a good shot of the torpedoes on the shark mouth but in general appearance , they look to be dummy torpedoes as well. I also notice no gun mounts are present...........

Those images reming me a lot of the old 1/72 Airfix RAF Rescue Launch model.

Apparently there were different arnament configurations. Note the similarity of the boat in the second build on the first link above to the boat in the images posted in this thread.

Cheers

Some similar looking photos, but instead of Elco or Higgins plant photos, these are from the Canadian Power Boat Company plant in Quebec.

The photo below are directly linked from this Canadian Government website:
