Cary Chapman commented on Gaylin Russell King's group Naval Support Activity Da Nang
"Could that "2" boat possibly be the hull of a PT boat.  I remember that there was a PT boat that ran around Danang harbor.  Some said it was equipped with water jet engines.  We never did find out what it's mission was…"
