Jeff;

I am happy that you were able to bring your dad to Battleship Cove. It must have been quite an experience for him.

Unfortunately my dad (Chester T. Szot EM 2) passed away in 1992 and never had the chance to step aboard a PT again. I would have loved to have seen the expression on my dads' face as he walked towards the PT.

He spoke often about standing on the bow and getting the ride of his life with the salt spray in his face.

As a kid the closest I got to a PT boat was some fisherman in Brielle, NJ who had bought a couple of surplus PTs' and converted them into deep sea fishing boats. I understood that they chopped about 20 feet off of the stern. Its not the same as seeing one as it was meant to be.
