Explorer 78 — By Capt. Bill Pike —
This is a yachtsman’s yacht for many reasons,
one being the comparatively simple upper helm (previous image) and
another being the lofty hardtop (above), which puts the radar scanner
well above the helmsman’s head for safety’s sake.
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. ▶
