    Dougs right, the PTs of WWII were propeller driven. The PBR of the Vietnam era was a jet boat. They look a little similar. The first pic is of my Dumas PT212, the seconds a Deans Marine PBR.

    "working a new one atm of a pt 109 boat, powerd by a jet motor like the origional design."
    Sorry Staffros, but I think you've got your wires crossed somewhereπŸ€”
    The PT Boats were never fitted with water jets.
    As far as I know water jets hadn't even been developed in the 1940s.
    PTBs were driven by 3 conventional shafts and screws powered by Packard engines.
    You may be thinking of the PBR (Patrol Boat River) as used in Vietnam.
    Otherwise known as Pibber.
    As I am restoring an old wooden PTB, and rebuilding as PT109, I have done considerable research on the PTBs. Mainly ELCOs like 109.
    Here's a couple of basic links to illustrate what I mean.
    PT Boat
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patrol_torpedo_boat_PT-109
    PBR
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patrol_Boat,_River

    There are plans and kits for the PBR on the market, and some examples of models here on this site.
    Cheers, Doug 😎
