Actually, the base that JFK operated out of was located on Rendova, south of the island of New Georgia. I have just gotten the game, and need to look at the rules a bit more covering PT boats. I probably will be modifying it a bit, having been in the Solomons, and flown over most of the islands. I did not make it to Rendova, but was on Kolumbangara, Gizo, and New Georgia, when landing at the Munda air strip on the way back to Henderson Field. I have attached three pictures that I scanned in from the trip. The first is of the Grayscout, the ship we used in searching for PT-109, under charter to National Geographic. The second is of the Munda air strip, which is pretty much the way it was in WW2, except that the jungle has grown back around it. The third is of me watching sonar screens, sorting out the targets on the bottom to determine which one might be the PT-109. Note, we did find it.
