I am going to disappoint you guys on this because my tugs (including the parts only tug that I just bought) are still as received while I gather parts (and get some major repair work done to the barn).
W/ respect to Vietnam experience, the Navy works in strange ways. I wound up on a destroyer escort and our main job was to ride shotgun on the electronics intelligence ship(s) (AGTR's) that sat off Cuba and vacuumed up transmissions (and decoded them, no doubt). The Navy did NOT want another Pueblo incident with the ELINT ship captured so we were the guard dog, so to speak. Hours, days and weeks of boredom hove to off the coast of Cuba in sight of the intelligence ship. Good fishing, though. I've never set foot in Havana but i've been 6 miles offshore.
