WWII PT Boat Cruises Past New Orleans Convention Center

Thousands of cars drive past the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center each day, but a vintage World War II PT boat (Patrol Torpedo boat) is something you don’t often see rolling down Convention Center Blvd.

Last weekend, the 73-year old PT-305, nicknamed the U.S.S. Sudden Jerk, was wheeled from the National World War II Museum, past the Convention Center, and down to the Erato Street Wharf. From there, a tug boat pushed the PT-305 to South Shore Harbor near Lake Pontchartrain.

The PT-305, a patrol/torpedo boat, was built in New Orleans at the Higgins Plant and was deployed in World War II. The National World War II Museum acquired the PT-305 a decade ago and spent more than $6 million to restore it.

Beginning in March 2017, the U.S.S. Sudden Jerk will host tours and rides on Lake Pontchartrain.
