Yup, she's on her way to the Bklyn Navy Yard for a  minor drydocking and then back home across from the Intrepid in early November. Clickety click on the below for the details and pic:

Nice pictures, glad she's back.  That one of a "line handler" - I hope that he did not intend to throw that hand line the way he was holding it!!  whole coil of line and the monkey's fist in one hand?  crazy2

He must be a former TM or A Ganger, personally I used to have half of the line in one hand and the other half in the other hand.. Now there were exceptions when trying to see who could toss a heevy line the farthest and then it was just like that, won a few lost a few doing it like that though

One of these days we need to sit pier side and see who can tie a monkey fist fastest.  I have one in my gararge to use when I need to get a line up over the roof for a hand line when doing weather station maintenance,  old people need support when walking on roofs. Cry

spent time in the deck gang and learned lots o' knots Grin

How about we just set on the pier and drink some nice cool beverages together and talk about ports past, never really learned how to time a monkey's fist because in the "supposed modern Navy" we used the orange rubber ball and now they use that with a throwing bag so that the line doesn't get tangled up onto intself while being thrown.

Well I know that blue balls are because of Wink  and that orange balls have been caused by eating too many cheeto's and then Huh?  but I never heard that orange balls are because of being a glow boat sailor 2funny
