Jet Boat


The 'Brown Water Navy' was well represented around Cau Viet. We had LSTs and YFUs bringin the stuff in. We had Mike-8 boats to haul the cargo off loaded from the LSTs and YFUs up the river. Sometimes the YFUs would go right up the river.

We also had lots of river patrol boats. While I was there a change of command took place. The homemade patrol boats were swapped out for the new Jet Boats.
