I AM PROUD TO HAVE HAD 3 SONS, ALL WERE IN THE NAVY. LIKE MYSELF AND MY BROTHER, TWO OF MY BOYS SERVED ABOARD THE SAME VESSEL. I WAS FORTUNATE TO BE ABLE TO SAIL ABOARD THEIR SHIP ON A FAMILY CRUISE. I WITNESSED "ALL AHEAD FULL" AT 35 KNOTS WITH A 36' PLUME OF WATER BEHIND THE SHIP. THE BAINBRIDGE COULD HAVE LIKELY PULLED SEVERAL HUNDRED WATER SKIIERS WITH A SURF OF 4'-5' TO JUMP.. PROBABLY WOULD HAVE GONE FASTER BUT ONE SCREW SHAFT WAS BENT AND SHIP WAS ON IT'S WAY TO BREMERTON FOR REPAIR. THE VIBRATION WAS AWESOME! Just think of all the feul we could save if all our ships could be nuclear.
