Pretty much all of them went either directly or from Springfield to Sewell's Point (Norfolk) VA for Navy use. Some show up in SRS and some have been found in ship records such as one that was incorrectly reported lost from the USS Hornet. Regarding PT boats specifically, I can't find definitive sources but seem to recall several knowledgeable collectors mentioning it. I wouldn't take that as fact by any stretch.
