Looking through it, Parker saw a speedy craft moving inside the veil—a PT boat.
His heart sank when he saw that even if this was a PT boat, it was not a Navy ship.
After fitting Stan out with dry clothing, the skipper went on deck and the PT boat got under way to resume her patrol work.
Some found the small boats, pushed out in them to the PT boat.
The PT boat ducked and wove in and out between the destroyers and the shore.
He had seen many rough-riding vehicles of war, such as tanks and jeeps, but the PT boat had them all bested.
