Brown Water Navy patrol boat getting repairs in SC

Posted: Updated:
MOUNT PLEASANT, SC -

One of the last remaining river patrol boats used by America's so-called Brown Water Navy during the Vietnam War is heading to dry dock.
    
A mammoth crane lifted the river patrol boat onto a flatbed truck at the Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum in Mount Pleasant on Tuesday.
    
The boat is being taken to a boat yard in North Charleston from the Patriots Point display of a Vietnam river support base. Officials at Patriots Point say the MK1 River Patrol boat is one of only two that are known to survive.
    
A second generation of the patrol boats, the MK2, was also used in Vietnam. About a dozen of those are thought to still be around.
    
Renovating the Patriots Point boat will take about a month and cost $30,000.
