Welcome aboard John Bay
« on: December 15, 2008, 08:07:11 PM »
Finally someone from the USS Albacore has shown up to be apart of this bbs and to hopefully help out others whom are trying to restore their boats. On a different note, I guess this means that I have to join LIB now that he has shown up here..

Welcome aboard shipmate, stay awhile this place grows on ya ;)

Damn you bet me too it.  John Was up there in Maine hibernating with all this cold, ice and snow.  But I got him to join today.

Now stand back, not only do you have a houseful of torpedomen, but now you have two Portuguese guys to contend with in the house.

Welcome my friend - sit back, relax, and jump into the conversations.  Remember lies sea stories always start with "Now this aint no sh..!"

Just a good jab at you Darrin to get on over to ussvi and join up.

Maybe I'll get to eat burgers one day with you Yanks.

Geez, Darrin, even being a Radioman is a step up from being a torpeckerman!  ;)

Ya know Chief, that is a very weak ping... BUT knowing that you can't work on the steam kettle anymore and that being a RM is the next best thing I will leave you alone.. How much money did the Navy spend on you to be a nukie poo only for you to cross train to RM for free???

 :knuppel2: Now, now children - lest we forget this was John Bay's introduction.  Now he thinks we pick on folks (which of course we do).  Let him get acclimated to the climate on board before we start jabbing each other.  It’s getting “cheek” deep in snow in Maine and John may have long days and nights at the computer.  :'(

 ;D By the way – us torpedomen are a proud clan – got better things to do than sit around listening to fish doing dirty things in the sea!  :buck2:

So where is John B. anyway. Does he just lurk? I know he isn't too peripatetic or ubiquitous most of the time, so maybe he is just being his usual diffident self. LOL

Ya know Bill, I am starting to believe that he is lurking like some others.. He has posted here a couple of times and that is about it, I need some TM help for the folks on Batfish tryin to bring weapons back onboard for the first time in many years and there options are limited as to what they can do. Please feel free to jump in and give us some direction, motivation and purpose where ya can.

Darrin, you got to remember, I am a nuc ELT. Now I did play with torpedos on the Scorpion, but sure our loading system was much differnet. I do know though that you want the screw towards the back and shut the door before shooting. That's about the sum of my knowledge. LOL Maybe some of the guys on the Cavalla can help out. They loaded one not too many months ago and I watch part of it with their webcam.

What if you are in the After Torpedo Room Bill - the screw points forward and the pointing thing points aft.  At least you shut the door! LOL :crazy2:

Gee John, I told you I was a nuc ELT. What's an aft torpedo Room? LOL Hey that reminds me, wasn't there some boat that had torpedos come out the middle of the boat. Maybe some novel I read.

Never heard of any tubes coming out of the middle.  Don't think it would be practical.  But I'm going to do some research on this one Bill.
