Thanks. The teeth are reminiscent of the Flying Tigers.

This boat, PT728 was sold by Mr Ianucci to the Port Clinton, Ohio Liberty Aviation Museum over 2 years ago! When was the photo taken? I will bet it was back in 2011?

Nope, it was April 15, 2012. Must have been sold right after that. It was in use on the Hudson as a tour boat for some time. It is starting to look like the remaining boat hulls will never be renovated which was the original plan. Maybe no $$ left.

I stand corrected. I did some more checking and it was in 2011 that I shot this photo. ... jim

I contacted the museum and have a PDF document I can share with you. Email me at jpmalonesr@msn.com. It has a good story about the PT 728.
