Default Looking For The Wackiest Ship In The Army (1965) (WWII Series)

Here's another short-lived 1 season TV series somewhat older that I'm looking for:

The Wackiest Ship In The Army (1965) (comedy-drama series set during World War II) starring Jack Warden (Crazy Like A Fox) and Gary Collins (Iron Horse, The Sixth Sense, The Home Show, PM Magazine). Warden played Major Simon Butcher of the US Army and Collins Lt. Richard "Rip" Riddle, who commanded a schooner U.S.S. Kiwi, and they were jointly sent on commando missions behind the Japanese enemy lines. Major Butcher was in command on land, and Lt. Riddle when they were at sea. Mark Slade (High Chaparral) played one of the Navy crewmen. This was somewhat loosely based on the 1960 movie of the same title starring the late Jack Lemmon and Ricky Nelson in a similar premise (only the ship also a schooner was
named the U.S.S. Echo).

The Wackiest Ship In The Army initially aired on NBC-TV during the 1965-1966 season but was sadly cancelled after 29 episodes were filmed by Screen Gems. It has to the best of my knowledge aired in reruns only once, and that was on the now long-defunct CBN Cable weekdays at 4 AM during the mid-1980's, nowhere since that I personally know of.

So far I have found various sets from the collectors market (very few I might add) that are combined from B & W film prints (some posted on Youtube) and the CBN airings that contain a grand total of 21 out of the 29 episodes. There are at least 8 unaccounted for that I'm looking for and especially an upgrade of episode 28 More Fun Has Blondes (my copy has been terribly edited and has partial end credits/no series opening credits, from CBN).

If anyone has The Wackiest Ship In The Army on DVD that includes all 29
episodes particularly from the CBN airings, please let me know. You can
tell me what episodes you have, and I will do the same. Then we'll go
from there. I'm not really counting on anyone having it at this point
since it was so long ago, even from when it aired on CBN, but I have to
at least try and make the effort.

Thanks in advance. Black Sheep One.
