U.S.S. Cole's stern tube after the attack!
« on: July 17, 2004, 01:20:13 »
This is the stern tube(where the prop shaft goes out to the proppeler) of the U.S.S. Cole after the Terr. attack in Aden.
You can see how much damage was done by the emergency flood control,one of the weekest point's on any ship.

Can anyone describe what that picute is showing exactly?  It looks like blocks of wood and some material stuffed in there, but I could be wrong.

Nope you are correct...when you do Damage Control you will become really familiar with that :D
I will leave your flesh on the mountains and fill the valleys with your carcasses. I will water the land with what flows from you, and the river beds shall be filled with your blood. When I snuff you out I will cover the heavens and all the stars will darken. Ezekiel 32:5-7

That's good.  I'm set to do my NETP course on August 23rd, so I'm sure I'll learn all about that then. :)

Soo.... Next time I'm on the market, looking to pick up an Aegis Guided Missle Cruiser, and I see something like that, I'll know it's a lemon?   :P

Heh, good pic.. thanks for posting it.  :salute:

BTW, my father is a ship modeller, check out what he scratch-built without the use of any plans, just some pictures from various magazines (This was before we got the internet)

He currently has some plugs in progress for the hulls of the Halifax, Arleigh Burke and the Ticonderoga, IIRC, but has taken a bit of a break from those ships in order to lay down hardwood flooring at home.
