Hauling-Ass on all 2 main engines. Maybe 14 kts.  That must have been me on the wheel, by the looks of the strait wake..

This is a special photo for me.  There was an incident when the officers head had a problem. (maybe a kotex got stuck in the overboard discharge valve). Anyway, the weather was kinda choppy, but I was wanted to go over the side to check the discharge opening.  Things really went to shit and I was getting beat up pretty bad.  Bob Parsons, (rest his oars) went here , grabbed me after several attempts, and hauled me aboard.  He saved my life.  I don't know why I remember, but John Peterson was in the starboard shears.
