From a Permian Basin Vietnam Memorial Representative,
Notes from The Virtual WallOn 15 Nov 1966, PCF-77 was at sea with seven men aboard:
Several days later, when divers attempted to locate the wreckage
"the largest piece they found was a piece of 'rolled aluminum' not more than 18 inches in length. The boat had been ripped apart by the sea, the sandy bottom and during the course of the storm had been torn and shredded into small, unrecognizable pieces. The recovered aluminum piece looked as it had been rolled up, like a newspaper, and then been polished silvery bright."
