Explorer 78 — By Capt. Bill Pike —
This is a yachtsman’s yacht for many reasons,
one being the comparatively simple upper helm (next image) and another
being the lofty hardtop, which puts the radar scanner well above
the helmsman’s head for safety’s sake. The 15-foot, hard-shell
dinghy on the boat deck (above) is custom-built by Marlow.
This Memorial Day, remember those who were lost serving our country on the high seas in the U.S. Navy aboard PT Boats. Recently we were invited out for a ride on the only operational combat-veteran PT Boat, PT 305 in New Orleans.
See what it was like here. ▶
