Tech Session: PT Boat 658 Museum

September 17 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

On Saturday, September 17, join us to visit the PT Boat 658 Museum where we will tour one of the few remaining Patrol Torpedo (PT) Boats from World War 2 that is moored here in Portland! The history of the PT658 is fascinating as it is one of the few PT boats that were built but never commissioned to serve. You can learn more about its history here: https://www.savetheptboatinc.com/history.htm.
In addition to the PT boat, we will tour the 1944 Landing Craft Infantry (LCI) 713 that is undergoing restoration. This craft carried 200 US troops to various landings in the South Pacific and has a length of 380 feet.

The veterans who are involved with both projects, donate their time for the love they have for these boats. Please donate using the donation site below to help continue these great restorations!  Then register for the tour.

Please meet at 5555 N Lagoon Ave 18 Portland Oregon 97217 at 10:00am for our tour. 

If there are any questions, please contact Heinz at vicepresident@oregonpca.org
