PT-3 is more east than PT-2.
All PT boats are either heading north or east.
For translating rows to numbers, A=6; B=7; C=8; D=9; E=0.
The front portion of a PT boat represents the columns (numbers 1-5).
The rear portion of a PT boat represents the rows (numbers 6-0).
 
Latitude: N 44 (PT-3 front)(PT-1 rear).(PT-3 rear)(PT-1 front subtract 1)(PT-2 rear subtract 4) 
Longitude: W 068 (PT-3 front)(PT-1 rear).(PT-2 front)(PT-2 rear)(PT-1 front)

The final cache is an ammo box cleverly hidden in a wooded trail system within the city. Please rehide the cache exactly as it was found and be careful about being seen as these trails are often visited by dog walkers and other non-cachers out for some fresh air.
