Pardon... I have a fascination with PT boats of all flags...and the schnellboot was the best of that breed...although I do like the wood hull elco's too...just weren't very efficient.

I meant me Greg! I'm fascinated by WW2 military vehicles too!

Are there any S-boats still surviving anywhere?

Yep...you have one in England...there is one on the east coast of the states, and a project ongoing in Holland, I think !

There is something kind of piratical about PT boats, the speed, the waves in your face...lots of firepower and little protection...I admire those captains and crews a lot...
