Frank,

There are a number of those boats still (I think) beached in VA ...

I use to see them next to Little Creek Amphib. base in Virginia Beach. There aren't there anymore. Not sure what happened to them.

I am not so sure but I am under the impression that the Greek (Hellenic) Navy currently uses four of them as patrol boats.( P196 Andromeda, P198 Kyknos, P199 Pegasus, P288 Toxotis).

@ Spiros:

Not sure of the current inventory, but you are right about P198.

While bouncing around the net a couple of weeks ago found a website that had a couple of blokes who had purchased what remained of those boats scrapped most of them for parts as they had gone far to far to salvage, the rest one or two the best of, they were going to attempt to restore.

Sorry don't have the web address but with a little luck it should not be to hard to find.

Frank, you might have a problem fitting it down those steep stairs into your collection.
