I've been looking for the PTE patrol boat as well and have pretty much given up. I was in TRU the other day and saw a Zodiac CZ7 Radio Control Boat that looked like it had "possibilities for conversion." It is pretty close to 1:18 scale if not actually 1:18. The CZ7 is the civilian version of the Zodiac H733OB which is used by Navy and Army Special Ops among others. I added a little "black out" flat black paint and have a pretty good start to a solution. Just need to decide if I want to add two 50 cal mounts or three M60A3 mounts. If I get really motivated I could scratch build some armor plates and a new cabin to do a version of the Navy's Riverine RIB H733s with desert camo paint (see pictures).
The boats are on sale about 1/2 off regular price as the model is discontinued (I paid $34.95 for mine).

I forgot to add the Zodiac schematic for the H733 for reference. This one shows the two 50 cal mounts. This one also has the "jockey pods" for seating instead of the captain's chairs.

Wow, yeah that looks great!
Thanks for the info and the pics, but $35 is a little more than what I wanted to spend on this project.
That sure looks cool though, I bet it's pretty wild looking sipping around the pool or the lake!

I was at my local Big Lots today and they had the PTE Marine boat, combat helicopter(not the blackhawk the other one), tank, and guard tower. Boat was either $12.99 or $14.99. I got the helicopter for $12.99. I think the tank was like $20 or $30 something, tower was like $10 or $12. They had plenty of stock.
