Crewmembers on board: Chief Mike, Dave, Larry “Ski,” Frank, Jaime and Tracey.

It was almost like a Saturday Field Day at sea…

• Chief Mike re-lamped the boat as much as was possible as the supply of fluorescent bulbs would permit.
• Chief Mike and Tracey polished brightwork on the boat. Tracey polished the brightwork on the rudder hydraulic pump motor [photo] in the After Torpedo Room and Control and silverware in the Wardroom. She also worked on brightwork on the bridge. Chief Mike polished in


Maneuvering and engine rooms.
