What were your impressions of the physical state of the ship? Don't hold back.

hi sir M - physical state? i'd say that she is properly maintained.... paint is new.. no grease/oil in the surroundings... markings are visible... they have service vehicle/s on board (an isuzu multi-cab & several motorcycles), guns are still working (as per crew stories of firing exercise).... ropes/mooring line are new... engine i think is still good coz they just came from indonesia & i saw her navigate the choppy water of surigao during undocking/docking manuever... etc...  crew also are well groomed... those on duty are in complete uniform (blue cover-all) complete with name plate... think it has to do with their CO... the crew told me that they have a good CO who really take care of their ship & of his crew

also, some of the WWII bullet wounds are still visible... was privilege to see a living-legend face-to-face....

as i was browsing my photos & seems i was over excited going on board that i missed taking pictures on a lot of things... planning to she her again next week... hope to get more pix

Thanks for the pictures and the comments! Any closeups of the guns? Any internal pictures?
One nice thing to note is that the 20mm guns are no longer the oerlikons. They are now the same 20mm carried by the peacocks.

This boat is heavily armed like there are cannons mounted for every few feet distance....floating Artillery Battalion.  Do PN WWII-age boat like this has their original HULL that are built and design for warfare or were they replace?

Hi to all...

It's been a while since my first post. .

Anyways, I would like to ask what type of ship is this? A corvette or a frigate? sorry not ffamiliar with ship classification.

Just arrive from port of Surigao City on board Cebu Ferries, then I saw this ship with Navy guys spotting something/someone. hmmmm. . .








Thanks for viewing. . .
