    PC-1640/1641 130k PC-1640 and PC-1641 believed to be the "first," two 173 foot PCs launched side by side at the Gunderson Brothers Engineering Corporation Shipyard on Thursday, 14 May 1964. The vessels were mounted on the same launching skid and braced about four feet apart amidships so they would not bump into each other when they floated free in the Willamette River. Bob Daly/PC-1181
