  3. What was the back story here; a sunk boat or a Navy/CG crew just wanting to cool off in shark infested waters ? If the later; I did indeed join the correct branch of .mil

  11. As have I; spent some time, not fallen out - we had doors on ours. Between the noise, vibration and the fear I can't believe anybody could ever fall asleep on one. Plus I kept wondering if I was flying on one I cut the ring gear for. We used to have to chopper out to some of the far away missile sites. If it was more than a one hour drive you would fly.
