Topic: 77 Foot Model
http://www.ptboatforum.com/cgi-bin/MB2/netboardr.cgi?cid=101&fid=102&tid=128



One of the things I do not have in the Exhibit is an Elco 77 Fooot PT Boat. Is there anyone out there that makes a Kit that is really nice at an affordable price? Yes, I can have one scratch built, but that can get costly. I was impressed with the John Haynes models, and as of this writing I am having his Higgins Boat built. At the moment, he offers both the Elco and Higgins kits, but not the 77 footer. I would appreciate any information on this hard to find model.

Hello Frank,

My name is Wayne Traxel and have been selling a 77' Elco hull and superstructure on Ebay for the last five years. The kit comes with hand lay up hull, the later 45-68 superstructure, and a set of plans featuring profile and overhead view of PT-61 for $129.99 . I sell this kit under the name of Wayne Enterprises. waylin@voyager.net

Wayne:
Thank you so much for getting back with me on the message board. I cant imagine how I managed to miss this Kit, although I have heard about you. I will certainly check this out. Again thank you. Do you have any scans you could send me of the completed boat. Send to mosquitofleet@comcast.net
