Kennedy's father won the boat in a church raffle and gave it to his son.
"My brother Jack drove that boat like it was PT-109," said senator Edward Kennedy, referring to his brother's wartime experiences in the Pacific. "He was a little rough on it."
Edward took ownership of the boat following his brother's assassination. It had two subsequent owners.
