Packard PT Boat engine in WA museum

Post by Leeedy » Fri May 11, 2012 6:37 am

You might like to know that there is a Packard PT Boat engine in the LeMay family collection at Marymount in Spanaway, WA (not to be confused with the new LeMay Museum in Tacoma, WA). This engine (last time I saw it) was sitting by a pedestrian door in what was then known as "the green building" on the Marymount campus museum of the LeMay family collection. As far as I know, this engine has never been mentioned in any official references and it is almost never mentioned on the museum tours. But it is (or at least was) there.

There are running PT boat engines at the "Save the PT Boat" historical center in Portland, Oregon.

Here is a photo of me by one of them in the engine room just after a ride.
