#1
Name of PBR 32 was "MAJIC CHRISTIAN",
It was named after an obscure Ringo Starr movie of the same name which featured
Ringo as the skipper of an entire boatload of nothing but beautiful young
women!! (I don't know what we were thinking.... it didn't work for us at all!)

Thanks, Mike Hebert, Vung Ro

Was sitting here this morning doing a VERY DANGEROUS! thing.  THINKING. I remember some time in late 67 or early 68 I was at Cat Lai. Had to tow a boat with blown engine to Cat Lo. Sometime earlier J-7841 had been cruising along the shore evidently when the tide was out or going out and they had struck a stump or something and tore a pretty big hole in the bottom. Someone was quick enough to pull the cap off one of the pumps and they got it beached. Don't know how they got the boat to Cat Lo for repairs but I picked the boat up and ran it back to Cat Lai. The weapons were somewhere unknown to me. I used this boat for awhile as a maint. boat down there and at Newport, maybe a month or so. Without the weaponry it was light and fast. This I believe was the boat I used when I ran the ammo up to the guys in a firefight up river from Cat Lai. Don't know what the final destination of this boat was. They must have eventually found the weaponry for this boat and put it back on patrol.   Bill Northrop
