Here is how the different salvage air connections are marked topside for the divers/volunteers/tourista's who want to learn how to bring one of our boats back to the surface one more time, that way the surfaces = dives ;)

Thanks COB!  I found it very interesting studying the strainers, the HIGH and LOW connections and piecing it all together to get the, "Why," of it. 

Shall now work on the welded Braille that divers used to identify connections in the dark.

Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of, "Captain Morgan's Black death!"  Aargh me hearties!  We be a fine bunch eh?

Hairy the Horrible.

PS.  Why doesn't the USSVI get someone to manufacture bottles of, "Eau de Boat." so that NQP Wannabes like me can smell right?   :laugh:

I go away for a week and Hairy wants some "Eau de Boat" to smell right and expects to have rot gut rum on board! Shiver Me Timbers what's going on around here!

Nice job Harry with the external salvage connections.

Hey JT,
that rum was donated to him in the bilges a few years ago for all of the hard work that he has done learning the Balao class and he is just now finding the bottles  :2funny:   Now that Hairy has had his rum and found the "sound of music" movies in the bilge he can get back to work on his qualls

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATLY SCHOOL OF THE BOAT IS SUSPENDED UNTIL ALL PERSONNEL ARE REASONABLY COMFORTABLE WITH DAMAGE CONTROL to include FLOODING AND FIRE, I have requested a VERY SPECIAL instructor :coolsmiley: teach this class because he is a fellow TM and I have little doubt in my mind that he will be able to help ALL of us when it comes to DC (Damage Control and NOT Direct Current) and yes I have a VOLUNTEER in mind for THAT block of instruction.........    Run Chief Mike RUN because you will be up front on that one :knuppel2:

Smile JT and Chief Mike....

it isn't THAT bad teaching these folks ;) all kidding aside we have a good bunch of folks here who want to learn and we just need to teach them what they need to know to make their boats safer and understand how they operate

Bring it on Darrin.  Knowing the electrical systems is a good idea especially if the boats are still using ship's electrical distruibution for lighting and utility receptacles.

Chief,
Once we get through the FIRE and FLOODING side of the school of the boat your butt is on the podium teaching :2funny:
Personally I would like for it to be tought from power coming in from shore power to being distributed through the boat, but that is your call on what you want to teach.

We have all of the deck plates, but I don't remember seeing any markings on them.  Might be too much paint.

IF you can please just send me the dimensions on the deck plates because I already have what goes on them posted on line, just need the size so I can have them manufactured. Thanks Mark
