Hi Folks,

Does anyone have the data for how many (percentage) US PT boat skippers graduated to tin cans or larger combat ships? Were PT boats a fast path to DD skipper or were they a deadend for those considered not quite the right stuff to captain a larger boat?

Cheers,
Guy

I'd imagine not many as promotion from PT boat would probably go onto some kind of gunnery/dept officer for a DD/DE before getting command of one but a with long enough naval career it'd happen.
