Do You Remember This?

August 17, 2019 - I just got off the phone with BT2 Ben Badger (Mobile 60-62) and he confirms he will attend the October reunion. He has a neat story about a cadet cruise to South America. Seems SEBAGO salted the boiler and for the next several days the entire engine room crew was on 24 hour duty just to keep enough steam to get back to Mobile.

Ben's story ends with arrival back at Mobile and the entire crew rushing to the showers as soon as shore power and water was hooked up,. But, most of us have those kind of stories about SEBAGO.  I hope you will be in Charlotte to tell YOUR stories.

Keep an eye out on this page. I might have another event to add to the weekend - a Sunday BBQ here at Salisbury.
