I have never seen one. The only ones we know of are the photos that show the early boats in the factory on the assembly line with a placard posted at the stern with the hull number. (see Genes PT King website)

Al . . .

Maybe try Bob Wade, the current/last skipper of the 305 in New Orleans. I'll email you his email address, in case you don't have it.

For those interested I stay in contact with Randy Smith at PT305 in New Orleans. He is their master mechanic who was primary man in charge of restoring the engines. I can give you his contact info upon request. He is pretty well connected and keeps up with the status and plans for the boat.
That is indeed sad news about Bob Wade. He was a great guy.
