    in Kingston NY of all places. Five WW II PT boats, 2 from the Elco works of my hometown. One is the last left of the breed.

    They appear to still be serviceable? What are the buildings next to them?

    The one with the teeth was running when blocked, the other 4 not so much, but some nice mahogany under the paint I'd bet. The building to the left is the Cornell Steamboat Company, circa 1827. The one to the right is a restaurant.

    There were several used as party boats along the coast. I know I was on one from Wildwood as a kid for fluke. My Father was a good friend of the Jack Bogan, both grew up in Bayonne, always fished Bogan's boat's out of Brielle and Pt Pleasant Beach, liked the Shamrock. I have a bunch of fare tickets from way back, old reels and cane poles. Fishing was a lot simpler back then :D
