One of the more unusual designs to come out of the Viet Nam war was the ASPB. These plans are from the ASPB manual.

That is a model of an RPB [RIVER PATROL BOAT ] IF IM NOT MISTAKEN All though I love sail, that is one boat, I would like to get my hands on [sentamential reason's ] Those boats were as good with firepower as the chopper's in the air. WOW! I have a Brother in Seattle Washington, who ram those up, and down the Mie Cong DELTA, in 1966, I was only onboard once and ran one of those, IN 1968 ILL stick to boots on the ground, we were open on both sides WHERE DID YOU GET THOSE? 55 YEARS AGO, THEY WERE HIGHLY CLASSIFIED WOW!
[ A.S.P.B] STANDS FOR ASSAULT PATROL BOAT].

Those are very accurate blueprints, some of them were old [ P T ] boats modified, they also had what they called [SWIFT BOATS], although I have never been on one, the high brass used them, as command centers [ very small Yate's ]
I HAVE BEEN AWAY too long, my no plans VICTORY WENT TO THE TRASh, THE WATTER BASED ACRYLIC PAINT, MADE THE WOOD SOFTER THAN WHAT It was already, next boat the civil war union "THE US PICKETT".
Are these on the market to buy? If so witch hobby shop? I thought maybe I had been removed from this blog, nothing in my email for a while. I had put off the building to get my home in order, selling it, it is not easy with covid 19, but I'm lucky enough to have gotten both rabies shots . cath yall on the flip flop boatman too
