Looking forward during station keeping, you can barely make
out the other MSOs thru the life lines on the horizon.

Taken from the mag tail deck looking towards
the spud locker. The stuff above the locker is the dunnage we used to store
the fifty five gallon fuel drums on the fantail so we could make it to
Yokosuka. Now interestingly enough, you can see how the boatswains tied
down the rudder on the motor whale boat so it wouldnąt fly around. You can
just barely make out the USS Loyalty off the port beam next to the rudder.

View off the starbord quarter from near the mag tail. Looks like the old black and white TV show opening of Victory At Sea
