Well Stan has just sent me the following photo's of my scratch built PT-10, with the following note that it is now completed. Except for the case, she is ready for shipment to the Andruss Estates to join all her other boats. I think Stan has done an incredible job on this project, and I hope you have enjoyed following the progress on the message boad. Now, to repair PT-109, wrecked by those two Kamakazi Cats.

Outstanding work, Stan! Your workmanship is exceptional and she is a beautiful piece of work. This is an amazing model of a truly historic PT Boat. With PT 10, the long line of Elcos had begun. It is refreshing to see models of unique boats besides the 80' Elco an 78' Higgins. Terrific job - Frank is lucky to have this boat in his collection. ALEX

Frank; I think he is him that waterfront warehouse where you have been storing all that wood in, if you give him a few months, I am sure he can build you a full size replica. This way you can be sailing past Melville next spring.
Take care,

Please don't give away my secret. I just need the Packard Engines, and Stan will begin building the real thing. Then I can give PT-658 a run for her money.....................

Stan the Man does it again, I find it incredible how quick and accurate he can build from scratch. Thanks for posting the images Frank.

Funny Ted, I bet that's an idea Frank has thought of before.

Hey Frank!
Awesome job to you and Stan on the model! It looks fantastic! By the way, I saw on Ebay, somebody is selling two 4M-2500 V12 Packard Engines on EBay! Item number: 200602283640 for only $60,000! Hot damn! Sounds like these babies have your name all over them! Dont you already own one packard? Just think now you could have the whole set? I want to race your boat! Jerry

Hey Jerry

When I hit the lottery (just before September 2011) I will be making an Elco purchase. She will be brought near my home, where it will be restored. I will install two Packard Engines into her engine room (you are right I already have one),then I will race that carboard box of yours (lol) and beat you into the dock. Remember, first one to the dock gets to fuel up first and get some rest..................Should be completed in 2014. Hope you can wait.
