I was aboard the rock for 2 1/2 yrs, 2nd div midsection. Work consisted of chipping paint, repainting, holystoning, putting up rathuards. And standing watches, aftlookout, helmsman, gate guard, bilge. What I miss the most is being out in the med, setting out at night watching the millions of stars and just enjoying the quietness. Sure do miss sailing to all those different places, I would do it again in a minute.
