[Mike was on the support side of the PTFs.]

I was stationed on the USS Comstock LSD19 and in 1964 we provided support for the nasty class boats. We would float the boats on a large skid and move them into the well deck and transport them to Subic for maintenance. We were on this operation for about 6 months. Also there is an osprey would you believe being used by the Sea Scouts at Susiun City CA. I had a sail boat at the marina there and the Sea Scouts has this big Osprey. I even went aboard and toured the boat on one of there open houses. The harbor master Ray Purvis may be able to give more information. Anyway thanks,
