Re: USS Ling

A saving grace folks is that she didn't have a hell of a lot of water underneath her keel, so yes her lower flats, bilges are flooded and if'n I had to guess needed to be pumped out and that means that she is still savable however I have not been on her and can't confirm that at all.

Re: Loss of a Shipmate

That's such a shame to hear of his passing, while I don't believe I ever met him I did however read about him over the years due to the past activities and work weekend lists.
