Built for the Navy at Jakobsen‘s in Oyster Bay and launched in November 1943, it took part in the D-Day invasion in Normandy, served in the Pacific, and then it retired to the Great Lakes. I bore the name Major Elisha K. Henson and John F. Nash (or Nash) before reverting to LT-5. See vintage fotos. Now it lives in Oswego on Lake Ontario, repainted its original gray.
