Description
The leading PBR of a patrol has intercepted a sampan crossing the river and has called the contact away from the bank for inspection. This photograph was taken from the second PBR which acts as "cover boat", watching the banks for the first sign of ambush. A high speed U.S. Navy PBR (river patrol boat) intercepts a sampan in the rung sat zone off the coast of South Vietnam to inspect for possible contraband.

We're looking off YRBM-16's stern. The dark pontoon with the white stripe around the edge has two Harbor Master diesel engines. They were our propulsion system for YRBM-16 herself. They worked like outboard motors on a small boat. We could move up and down the Bassac from Chau Doc to Long Xuyen. Our officer-in-charge, Lt. Glenn Shindler, could parallel-park YRBM-16 at night, in the rain. The two boats are Mark II PBRs.

This is one of our PBRs coming full bore. Notice that she's almost completely out of the water. That's called being on step, and the water pumps are sucking in water through a strainer and then using the Jacuzzi pumps blowing it out the back of the boat. The little box on top of the mast is the Raytheon 1900 ND radar, and it had a unique gift. This radar was sensitive enough that it could distinguish logs and trees in the canals and the rivers, and it saved a lot of lives because hitting one of these logs at 40 knots would've pretty much been catastrophic for the boat and the crew. Here she's on the Bassac running 35 knots headed toward the Vinh Te Canal.

Description
I'm going to show you some of the PBRs now being loaded up and I'm going to show you some of the unofficial modifications that we made. The veterans here will notice that these are both the Mark II Boats, and there's several ways to know that. One, the two 50-caliber guns, which are dead center in the picture, are far enough apart that the gunner will sit more or less between them. On the earlier Mark I Boats, the barrels were close together and the gunner sat more behind them than between them. You'll also note the Herculon cover over the barrels being pulled back for maintenance, and you'll notice a big spotlight on the side of the gun. You'd leave this off until the last minute and then turn this on when it was time to shoot. The gun itself could be trained left and right electrically. You'll notice the railings or gunnels. It's a stronger metal and it enables the boat to be picked up out of the water with a crane. The drawback of it is up a canal that's got a lot of leaves and vines, a VC or a North Vietnamese could reach out and lay a live grenade up on that deck and because of that raised lip, the grenade would not roll off the deck and into the water and once the grenade was tossed up there, somebody had to be a hero real quick before everybody got killed. Now, look in the upper left corner of the picture, you'll see what looks like a chair from when you were in the first grade in school, underneath that plastic chair, there's a pedestal made up of four heavy springs and a steel plate. We came up with that ourselves. It drops in behind the two guns and the bow gunner sits on that and it has this for its purposes. If a mine or a grenade goes off under the bow of the boat, that sudden vertical movement could break his back and/or his neck. Sitting on the springs like that, it worked like a shock absorber and it made sure that the bow gunner might get hurt and bruised, but he certainly wasn't going to break any vertebrae or a skull in this.

This slide shows a PBR with a hole in the side. We were still at Nha Be when this picture was taken. A rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) had failed to detonate on the fiberglass hull, passing out the other side, becuase it did not strike the radios. The PBR could travel at over 35 miles per hour, and was a fairly hard target to hit. The small "house" in the middle was called "chiefs' quarters," and the most senior enlisted man in the crew was called the "bleeding petty officer," instead of "leading petty officer."

This is one of our PBRs being picked up out of the water. She had four pad-eyes on the boat, and we could pick her up and sit this boat on the roof on top of the machine shop. That's why we didn't extend the helicopter pad that far back, because we needed the machine shop to be open to these boats. The shop had a big opening in the roof where we could pull an engine from a PBR, lower it down through the hole and set it on a test stand and we could do most of the other maintenance while the PBR was up top of the machine shop. This was a very critical feature for us.

Description
This is a PBR that took a mine hit in the Vinh Te Canal. This was our first really catastrophic hit, and our first really big repair job. This boat was hit about five miles from where she is now and had to be rescued under fire and towed back. Look to the left of the hole, now look down and see a red 55-gallon drum. What that is, that's the floats that we used to pick this boat up off the bottom. These drums would be empty and they had a little fitting on them where we could inject Styrofoam. This stuff came out kind of thick like shaving cream, but once it was in the drum, it expanded and it excluded the water and now we have a 55-gallon drum full of Styrofoam like you have on a beer cooler or a coffee cup, and with a couple of these added to the boat's own foam that was inside the hole, we could get her up out of the water pretty fast and then tow her back to YRBM-16 for repairs.

This is to show you some of the boats we did not work with. These are the Swift Boats, called PCF, for patrol craft fast. They worked offshore in an operation called Market Time. I took this at their training school in Coronado, California. These were nice boats, and these guys had a lot of guts because they worked operations where they were going to be the only guys showing up at night with very little support, and this boat actually had less gunfire than a PBR although it was bigger than these. These were some very brave guys.

This shows you what a PBR looks like when we pick her up out of the water. Notice underneath there, almost to the stern near you, looks like a funny little window with some steel plates in it. That's the intake for the Jacuzzi pump. There's another intake like that a little to your left, and those blades would cut limbs and leaves, etc., and keep them from harming the insides of the Jacuzzi pump and the thrust gate. We could set two of these boats down on the deck above the machine shop, do the whole work up here and lower the engines down through the hatch and work on them in an area that had some fans and a little bit of air-conditioning.

Description
This is the stern of a Mark II PBR. In the boat number are several elements. 31 is the length of the boat (31 feet). RP stands for river patrol. 6780 is the hull number. Generally the crews called the boats by only the last three numbers. This is "Boat 780." The red cable is the control cable for the thrust reversers. Here, the water from the Jacuzzi pumps will blow back under the boat, stopping it in its own length at 15 miles per hour. To go forward, the coxswain (driver) would pull two levers which raised the gates of the thrust reversers, allowing the water to create forward thrust.

Description
I'm going to show you some typical boats that came along side us on YRBM-16 and remember, we all had in our minds what happened the previous Thanksgiving when some innocent looking person attached a mine to YRBM-16 and killed a bunch of people, so we were pretty alert when any of these boats were going by. This is right after the rainy season. You don't see any canal bank; the water's right up to the vegetation, and this is a very typical water bus here. It carried about eight passengers. Up on top, you can see those shiny silver cans of nuoc mam, this fish sauce that they would sell in the marketplace, and all the way to the right was a five-horsepower, two-cycle gasoline engine with a direct link to a propeller shaft, and the guy put the blade in the water and used it to propel and steer the boat. And believe it or not, with a light load on board, one of these guys could outrun a PBR. He couldn't outrun the M-60 or the 50-caliber guns, but he could outrun a PBR on calm water. First, the boat's really deep in the water. It's loaded very heavily and can what we see account for that much weight. Also, can you see everybody's hands? Is anybody holding anything or appear uncomfortable because they're sitting on anything and you had to ask this question constantly because the decision on whether to open fire or let them pass was very quick and if you shot these guys, a board of inquiry was going to take months to look at a decision you had to make instantly. This was very scary for twenty-two and twenty three year old Lieutenants Junior Grade.
