School of the boat request
« on: September 16, 2008, 07:09:35 PM »
ALL,
while we are learning these systems IF you have any qual drawings of these systems or your boat has generated them (i.e. Pamp or Torsk or whom ever) can you please post those all for all to see that way we all can get a better idea of what the systems look like instead of just numbers and letters. On Honolulu we had a MM1(SS) that used to put us to sleep during the school of the boat and to keep us on our toes he used to toss some pics in his presentation of women in not much clothing to keep us awake. While I can't do that here it would be nice for those whom have the diagrams to share them with the rest of us, that and it will hopefully give the other boats a good idea of where to look for their equipment.

Darrin,

I have copies of Qual books at home for Torsk. I will see what I can do. What system are working now and what might be next, so that I can get them scanned?

Thanks Gil,
I know that Rich Pekelney put the Pampanito's online a little while ago and when I went to find them they were gone or I had lost the link, while a Tench is different from the a Balao which is different then a "B" girl to the first flight 688's that I qualled on it would be nice to have ALL of the boats put their drawing's up so that we can all see the differences that happen between the classes.
Gil,
hopefully we have all of the systems in the qual books that you have at your house, right now IF possible the AIR systems (low and high) would be great.
Thank you very much for offering to post those online for me to help all of us learn our boats.

Pampanito drawings can be found here: http://www.maritime.org/drawings/index.htm
