Default Anyone have any info on this vintage Navy boat?

Hi I came across this vintage boat which I call a Navy boat. The guys on here look to dressed in Navy outfits? This thing measures about 30in. long and is all wood. Has twin motors inside. Not sure if this was RC or not. But most likely was. This was my fathers and has been sitting for atleast the past 20yrs. Would like to know if anyone knows who made this? what year? any other info would be great. Its not in premo shape but It's very unique in my opinion. Thanks for any info I included a few pic's.

Dave

It looks like a pt-109 kit built as fast launch, or a gun boat.

It's definately a PT boat, but with many of the parts broken off or not installed

Thanks guys for the info now that I know its called a PT boat. I'd like to find out about what year its from and maybe who made it. Yeah it looks to be missing some parts. This is how I found it and didnt come across any other parts for it. Most likely just gonna put it up on e-bay and see what happens.

Thanks Dave

The figurines are too large for this scale boat @ 33". But would work on mine better. Mine is 40" long.
