The image has pretty good provenance, it is in JFK's scrapbook and on the cover of Ballard's PT 109 book "Collision With History".
If that is the 109, then obviously before the 37mm gun was lashed to the foredeck.
This photo of the 109 doesn't show it anywhere although it might be tucked in somewhere like on the port side of the bridge. I don't know the date this was taken, or if there is any evidence about it given in one of the many books written:
Did PT109 have its raft aboard when it was rammed. Where was it stowed? On the aft deck house?
