PT-305 Update – Planking the Hull

dividing bar

The John E. Kushner Restoration Pavilion at The National WWII Museum is home to the PT-305 Restoration Project.

It’s a busy week in the John E. Kushner Restoration Pavilion. Today volunteers made surgical cuts to the cradle that is currently supporting the WWII-era PT boat. Later this week, PT-305 will be raised 30″ to allow the crew better access to the hull for the planking process and the current cradle will be dismantled. We hope to have more updates for you soon on this process. Meanwhile, learn more about the history of PT-305 and the renovation process.
