REUNITING SHIPMATES OF THE USS ALEXANDER HAMILTON, SSBN 617
I forgot all about it. We sprayed the walls of the dry dock and the yard birds. They were NOT very happy with us.

This brings to mind a couple more situations. The Ecology connection was inadvertantly moved from the tank lined up to blow to another tank. Unbeknownst, we opened the blow valve and spewed poopies topside. HA HA HA - the yardbirds were running for cover as we showered them. The basin got plastered as the contents of the tank shot up and ran down the sides of the ship. Another night, Mitch Kassel and I were blowing the tanks. We got the hose connected right but when I opened the blow valve, nothing came out. We checked the line-up and tried again but nothing. So I let her have it again and Mitch starts screaming over the SP phones "TOMMY STOP STOP". Whatever was blocking the hose blew out and the hose stood straight out spewing contents back and forth. Wasn't that fun??.
