Topic: Yard hull numbers
http://www.ptboatforum.com/cgi-bin/MB2/netboardr.cgi?cid=101&fid=102&tid=4283



Awhile back, I posted the hull numbers for the 80' ELCOs on my Small Naval Combatants site. Anyone have the yard hull numbers for the 70' and 77' ELCOs and/or the Higgins boats? It's an obscure detail item, but always useful at some point.

On the PT Boat facebook group, there is a short thread that includes a picture of the builder's plate for one of the 800 series boats acquired by Argentina. [url]https://www.facebook.com/groups/335730754290/[/url]

The boat was last in service as 'DON LUIS", a tour boat,. The yard number was 10345.

I just wanted to say thank you Al, I've used the list you posted twice now when the 80' Elco drawings applicable boat numbers weren't legible but the hull numbers were. It sure is a lot easier and not error prone when a drawing doesn't cover a full series. [:-cheers-:]
