Are you guys still in business? We are interested in going on the Fall foliage tour if you are still doing it. We have visited your building and tug boat museum in the past.
Writing to learn about PT 486 ( The Sightseer out of Wildwood N.J.). Understand you have it, are you restoring? Love this boat, hope it has a future.
What is the status of the PT's?
Would you know what the current Blue Sightseer boat out of Wildwood NJ. is? I thought it was PT486, I was on this boat in 66,67,68 and 88 and now I see it is being restored as 109 I am confussed.
Are you still in operation? What is the status of the PT boat's ?
What happened did you disband?
Might Fleet Obsolete be Rob Iannucci?
Do you guys do PT boat rides in the summer?
QUESTION-would anyone know of a PT boat that was painted pink and docked in the canals of Massapequa in the early 1970's ?
how is the restoration going on PT 48 ? anxious to see what is next..
Like to know more about pt 48
