Synopsis for P.T. Boat: "Fujara Lives"

Ex-Minister Fujara has survived the massacre of his Suicide Fleet but is adrift in a rubber raft, until one of his destroyers, returning from a supply mission and loaded to the gunwales with high explosives, finds him. Clearly this is the handiwork of destiny; they will make one final strike at the Yankee dogs by sailing this ship into the U.S. PT Boat base and crashing it directly into the main quay. The resulting detonation will render the entire base useless.

En route to the U.S. base, Fujara is intercepted by a PT Boat, piloted by Perry Tobias and Paul Harvey. In a brief battle, the torpedo boat is destroyed, Harvey is wounded, and both American officers are captured onto the Japanese destroyer. Fujara demands that Lt. Tobias should pilot the warship thru the base's defensive minefield; Tobias refuses, and is locked in the brig. As soon as he is unobserved, Paul Harvey escapes from the ship's sick bay and makes his way to the brig, frees Tobias, then starts a fire in the hold among the densely-packed explosives. Paul and Perry then visit the wheelhouse and take it over, steering the speeding destroyer away from the harbor entrance and onto the nearby reefs. Harvey and Tobias dive to safety just before the destroyer explodes.
