    Default Re: Working aloft

    If the cable was not washed down and then let go again once dried out, it was best not to stand anywhere near, as the hail of dried lumps of mud travelling at supersonic speed was like standing in front ( should you be so stupid ) of a Gatling Gun - - seen a certain stupid cadet get one hell of a cut nose and black eye, by being hit by one rather large piece of dried out and very hard South American mud. Someone had not washed down the cable after its last dunking on the ships last trip, naughty naughty.

    I do remember though the peace of working aloft - painting - away from the maddening crowd and at peace with the world - ruined only by the shouting of the bosun : " are you going to be up there all day, get your a**e in gear " - oh happy happy days.
