I was helping out a friend who recently bought a German patrol boat in Holland. When wandering about on the shipyard where my mates ship was I came across the crazy little thing. Its made of aluminium, has its original colors and is more or less complete. It found out who the owner was and he told me it was used by the American army in 1944 during Operation Switchback in the South of Holland. It had sank in sweet water, and was recovered in 1952 by his father.
The engine, a GM, is redone and he told me it is a very fast boat.
I went on board and found it still has all the labels and even the canvas rifle holders!
He wants to sell it, but is asking a silly price.
Anybody seen one of these before?
