My skiveys needed some work after that experience.

Was that the time we went through the Strait of Gibralter, following an ASR? We were on one engine going ahead 3 knots and the weather pushed us 2 knots back. I remembering the OOD said he could barley see the aircraft warning lights on the ASR every 1 minutes or so. We had another rough transit through the Straits of Bonifacio, between Sardinia and Corsica, where we lost the aft messenger buoy. They wouldn't let us dive till we got a new buoy. I think someone found our original buoy and we got it back much later.

I think we stayed in Naples until they flew bouy over to us. also on the trip over we were in very rough weather when we lost use of the antenna on the scope. I remember I had to go up on top of the sail and take 40 allen screws off and lower the antenna to the bridge and then put the new one on after putting the special grease and gasket on. it was very cold and I kept one hand in a pocket and worked with the other one and switched off when the one hand would get numb. we were rolling pretty heavy as I would look down and see nothing but water on each side as we rolled that way. I don't think I have ever been so cold, I know doc gave me a shot of rum or something when I came down. I'll never forget how cold it was.
