From this old site "http://members.tripod.com/pcga109/ships.htm
", we have a lot of ships that we have no records as to what had happened to them. Their status as of this moment.
Do you have also some pictures and specifications of BRP Davao del Norte?
It's would be nice if we can keep a database of the ships that is currently on the inventory of PN as well those who have been retired and those who met Davy Jones' locker.
Here are some information you may probably know but I just recently encountered over the net about other Philippine Vessles acquired and under construction.

Tenix built Search and Rescue vessel delivered to Philippines
Tenix Defence has handed over a 35-metre Search and Rescue vessel to the Philippine Coast Guard the fifth of six vessels it is building under a follow-on contract with the Philippine Government.
The vessel arrived in the Philippines yesterday, Saturday 1 November.
Named BRP ROMBLON, was formally handed over to the Commandant of the Philippine Coast Guard, Vice Admiral Reuben S Lista, at an official ceremony in Fremantle WA.
The Philippine Search and Rescue Project is the latest success in the long history of Tenix patrol boat design, construction and export at its Henderson shipyard.
Designed entirely by Tenix for rapid emergency response, BRP ROMBLON, is equipped for survivor recovery and rescue coordination, and will assist with humanitarian aid in South East Asia similar to its sister ships.
Tenix delivered two 56-metre SAR vessels, BRP SAN JUAN and BRP EDSA II, to the Philippines Government in 2000, and was then contracted to build 6 extra vessels for the Philippine Coast Guard as part of the follow on order valued at A$130m.
Tenix has already delivered two 56-metre SAR vessels and two 35-metre vessels to the Coast Guard with the last vessel from the follow-on order to be delivered in January 2004.
Work on these and other similar vessels has generated employment for an additional 200 personnel at Tenix's Henderson facility and approximately 70 personnel subcontracted over the life of the ship-builds.
