PT Boats were a variety of motor torpedo boat (hull classification symbol "PT", for "Patrol Torpedo"), a small, fast vessel used by the United States Navy in World War II to attack larger surface ships. The PT boat squadrons were nicknamed "the mosquito fleet".

PT 658 is at the Naval Reserve Center, Portland, OR. PT 659 is at the Oregon Military Mus., Portland, OR. The PT 658 is being restored, using some parts from the '659. Save the PT Boat, Inc. and PT Boat Restoration, Inc. are involved in the restoration. The 659 boat is to be moved to the Fort Vancouver National Historical Site in Vancouver Washington.
