Default Some photos

USCGC Chase in Boston, '83 or '84.



My first day at sea in '83 near Curacoa, we chased this drug boat for hours as they dumped tons of MJ.


Cox'n "C" School, Yorktown, VA in '85.

The photo of the Chase brings back some fond memories. Chase veteran 73-75.

Yes it was - when I first reported we had I believe five 378's, then two left for the west coast. Chase had a proto type computer system in CIC, so if we weren't on ocean station, cadet cruise, drug patrol down south we were operating with the Navy. We also had the "hinge" installed mid ships along with the new windows to see if that was the solution to the cracks we used to get around the windows in heavy wx.

That must of done the trick as I don't recall cracks around the windows being an issue when I was on there.

It was very common to find windows cracked after being on an ocean station, especially bravo or Charlie. To test the mods we had to run various speeds on both the rock crushers or the turbines in seas up to 25-30 feet. That was a ride, damaged mount 51 during one test, sheared off the vent for the fwd hold on another (that stop tests for the day while repairs were made). It wasn't unusual to see 25-30 footers on either bravo or Charlie at any time of the year.

Construction period of Sattahip, Thailand Loran C Station Summer of 1966. I was part of the Tight Reign Project to build the SE Asia Chain.
I climbed the tower hot! Cold getting on and off. Later they can up with a procedure to get on and off a hot tower with a fiberglass ladder. Chris
