    Finally after all the work is done that needs to be done on drydock. All the welders, high lifts, tool sheds or Dog Houses as we call them are cleared from dry dock. The boat is slowly lowered into the water and a crew of machinist and boilermakers stay on board to check for leaks (like a valve that wasn't shut correctly or any other thing that may arise that was not expected.

    A Lady Shipyard Welder!! And she had no problem telling me she could out weld me any day of the week running stick overhead when she was in her late 70's lol. I saw these pics on another post and it made me think of her. She's the one that got me thinking about welding as a career. Name:  lady welder.jpg

    Hey CEP! Call me next time the sub's come in. I'm dying to see a trident sub.
    I'll buy the beer!!

    Quote CEP "My one son-n-law is a rigger at Bangor, he is in the crew that moves the Trident subs around. I've seen the subs go through the Hood Canal bridge, those puppies are huge!"

    Thanks for the info and the pics. I never thought about those numbers until you wrote about it. Truly amazing.

    As for the women welders, does the girlfriend weld ? Ah, she might like the smell of coffee instead of rod. Actually, I like like the smell of coffee better.

    Nope the girlfriend doesn't weld. She's a big supporter and she's a hard worker and she makes my life easier. She prefers things that are clean and neat and me wearing cologne over the smell of grinding dust. lol. The rust and grinding dirt do not go well with her white couches haha
    I personally prefer she has coffee in the morning .... she's not a morning girl. Kidding she's really laid back and always there for me

    I was on the Hood Canal floating bridge in 1988 when I'm sure they brought a boomer into Bangor submerged. We were stopped on the bridge while they opened it up, then here come a little USN boat. We waited for ever with the bridge open for another little USN boat about two miles behind the first.

    Re: Shipyard Pics

    I can remember being out there when they brought the 1st Trident in back in 1982. I do regret I never got a tour of one of the subs when we were out there, though our Scout troop went on at least one that I remember. I did tour the pier and some of the facilities with the troop when we were camping on base.

    A tug that was helping anchor the Artic Challenger offshore for testing. Vigor Marine did most of the structural conversions to make the Artic Challenger ready to be ice class and sturdy enough to be a oil well containment system platform.

In the old war movies they show guys running and grabbing the top of the door and jumping through. If I did that there would be a traffic jam because I'd go flat of my face.
