« on: November 22, 2017, 11:36:50 AM »
From: http://www.warboats.org/mk3.htm

Builders: Marinette Marine, Wisc. and Peterson Builders, Sturgeon Bay, Wisc.

The PB Mk III was developed as a multi-mission inshore warfare craft for U.S. and foreign naval service.  The U.S. craft are operated by the active SBUs.

Design:  The Mk III is a modified commercial craft used to support offshore drilling platforms in the Gulf of Mexico.  These craft are of all-aluminum construction with their pilot house offset to starboard to provide maximum deck space for weapons and equipment.  The craft has low radar cross-section and quiet engines for clandestine operations.  Mission duration is up to five days.
