PT Boats docked at Taboga in Panama
(Left to right / foreground to background) PT-40 (No. 9), PT-61, PT-48 (No. 3) and PT-45 (No. 2) during commissioning ceremonies at the newly established MTB Base. The hull numbers displayed on the cabins were changed. The eleven boats of MTB Squadron TWO were numbered 0 - 10 to confuse any possible enemy agents: German agents in New York and the United States and Japanese spies in Panama.
