VADM Jay Donnelly and staff (lots of tin fish present) toured COD on Tuesday... the chief in the group poked into every nook and cranny... I sweated some bullets and I'm not even in the NAVY!  Shocked

This was (TMK) the highest ranking Navy officer to ever visit COD!

Was this your official Navy inspection or was it just a pleasure visit?  Did they go below deck into the dirtier areas?

From the looks on their faces, I don't think they would mind a little dirt.  Did you get a 4.0 rating?

Goat gotten!   Angry


Yes, sadly there a lots of dirty spaces on COD, and some rusty spots on the superstructure!  But overall they were impressed. The admiral was suprised that there was this much WWII sub history "so far inland!" as he put it...   I guess COMSUBFOR doesn't work with the St. Lawrence Seaway all that much since we sank the last Soviet sub in Lake Erie in 1986!

Well then, I guess he would be really suprised with how far "inland" Batfish is.
