PT 658, Some Sanity in Portlandia

 

PT 658 is one of two fully operational PT boats in the United States. The second is PT 305, located in New Orleans, and spare parts from PT 658 were used in the restoration of PT 305.

In 1993, she was donated by the late owner’s estate to the veterans of Save the PT Boat, Inc. of Portland, Oregon. PT-658 was transported from Alameda to Portland in May 1994 by the 144th Transportation Unit of the Washington National Guard on the deck of the U.S. Army Logistics Support Vessel General Brehon B. Somervell (LSV-3). – from Wikipedia
