Default Patrol Torpedo Fast, "Nasty Class"

While doing a little poking around on the net looking at boats, I came apon a web site dedicated to the PTF "Nastys" that were used during the Vietnam era.

80' wooden boats fitted with twin 3100 horsepower Napier Deltic diesel engines and all sorts of ordnance... "Nasty" certainly fits this boat!

Wow...That thing looks like it can hit some serious speeds....Did you look at the pix of those Deltics? They look really weird compared to modern diesels...

Yep.
I haven't been over there to take a look at her yet, but I plan to try to get some photos of her and post them when I do.
Pretty amazing boats...

There are a few of those on the hill (chesapeake Yacting Center?,) near the hot ditch in Chesapeke, VA

They can be seen from I64 just after the twin bridges if your headed east...I think they have 6 hulls in dry storage.....deadly looking bastards, even when they are on stands

hard to believe that is wood? Steel yes but wood I think not.... I was in the NAVY during the Vietnam Era and all the ships in the fleet at the time were steel hull unless this was some special type of boat used for some special purpose that required non metal hull

Plenty of Whalers in Vietnam, and neither steel or wood were those hulls.

I believe most of the wood P.T. boats were stripped and burned after WW II. There were some with aluminum hulls that were mothballed and recycled in Vietnam. There were also a wide variety of special boats built specifically for that war.

The antennae on this boat lead me to believe it is a WW II boat. The orange life-jackets probably mean it's in civilian hands but I'm not going to bet the farm on either point. It's also possible that it's a British MTB - their boats had more guns but only 2 torpedoes.

Go to the site link and read up... Some of the PTF's were built in the Trumpy yards in Annapolis, directly across from the US Naval Academy.
The photos and site text will answer your questions.

Cool! Where are the outriggers?
Those certainly are large engines.

You mean this? Source = http://www.ptfnasty.com/

Pre-Vietnam: Development of the PTF Nasty
History for the PTF began in the late 1950's when the prototype motor torpedo boat NASTY was developed for the coastal anti-invasion mission of the Royal Norwegian Navy, as a follow on to their U.S. built PTs and British Fairmile "Ds". It was a private venture financed by shipyard entrepreneur Westermoen.

The NASTY was designed by Jan H. Linge in close cooperation with World War II experienced officers of the Royal Norwegian Navy. Linge used a computer to analyze the features of the best patrol boats developed up to that time and to test improved designs. The prototype was completed in Autumn of 1957 and it was successful in tests by the Royal Norwegian Navy.
