The summation of these effects, i.e., 6 feet of center of buoyancy rise minus 10 feet of loss in metacentric radius (BM) plus the 5 feet gained in BM equals the one foot increase in initial stability after flooding was completed. The book (and film) is about the crew of the Belinda (APA-22), an amphibious attack transport. generators. According to studio press materials, Universal's vice-president in charge of production, Edward Muhl, bought the screen rights to the novel in March 1954.

CHEROKEE had carried away her lines and had broken the connection to her 6" pump. EDWARD RUTLEDGE ltr. The available facts are as follows: (1) At a 26 foot draft and with an assumed permeability of .80, both had a floodable length of only two compartments (margin line at main deck). All power, lighting and communication went out with the first hit and no auxiliary lighting was available, resulting in complete darkness. When the explosion occurred, all circuit breakers for pumps in operation were blown open and lubricating oil and fresh water pressures were lost, which caused the main engines to be stopped. 2 hold and No. Salvage operations were undertaken immediately and divers from CHEROKEE made temporary patches which permitted pumping of No. Sump tanks were pumped, refilled with fresh water, pumped and wiped dry. This included 77 motors varying from 1/4 h.p. After one month of production in the Caribbean, the company returned to California to shoot the remaining scenes at the San Diego Naval Base and the Universal lot.

On the evening of 12 November, 1942, TASKER H. BLISS was anchored in 25 fathoms of water off Fedala, French Morocco, with 45 fathoms of chain to the starboard anchor. She therefore took over the tow and RAVEN continued pumping until about 2245, at which time she cleared ELECTRA's side and trailed her into Casablanca. In both SCOTT and BLISS the loss of power could not be helped. As tank manholes to both No. The USS Fremont played a minor roll in the making of this movie. 2 hold filling No. 23.

Hawks whips his crew into shape, intentionally becoming a martinet to ensure the frustrations of his rookie crew center on him, forging them into a concentrated unit. It appears that this was actually installed before the ship was torpedoed. Inclining experiments are not available for these ships, but the Navy Yard, New York (Field Production Division) reported that SCOTT with 1,000 tons of ballast had a metacentric height of -1.23 feet (presumably in Condition II) and that 1,000 tons of additional ballast were to be installed.

RUTLEDGE was at anchor in the transport area off Fedala, French Morocco, riding to the port anchor in 23 fathoms of water with 60 fathoms of chain. The gain in initial stability with extensive flooding, as in the case of the ELECTRA, is accompanied by a large decrease in maximum righting arm and range of stability. These wing tanks have a capacity of about 315 tons each for the fuel oil tanks and 136 tons each for the fresh water tanks.

The refrigeration spaces probably flooded all the way across in a short time and nearly all of the final list thus is attributable to the flooding of wing tanks. He reported that for the next hour the list seemed to increase gradually and objects kept sliding across the deck. Large quantities of fuel oil flowed out on the water on the starboard side. The state of the wing tanks at the time of the damage is not known, but even a small amount of flooding in these tanks would cause a considerable heeling moment and would contribute materially to the list. Here, his stalwart presence and commanding baritone made him more than servicable for television through three decades: (Goodyear Theatre, Playhouse 90, The Ford Television Theatre); '60s: (Perry Mason, The Rifleman, Star Trek, The Outer Limits, Glynis); and '70s (Cannon, The Streets of San Francisco).

When the mail finally arrives, Dave reads a letter from his wife, Nadine, reminiscing about how they met: They share an instant attraction, and although Nadine is disappointed that Dave does not try to kiss her on their first date, she is thrilled with the passionate second date. Apparently, neither ship developed an excessive list immediately after the damage, although RUTLEDGE did list to starboard as a result of unsymmetrical rapid flooding as indicated on plate II. At 0030, the BLISS was observed from shore to be burning fiercely from stem to stern and ammunition was exploding every few seconds. There was an appreciable interval (about 10 seconds) between the two explosions. There were 11 large holes and numerous smaller ones in the port side. in education from Temple University in 1943, he pursued a stage career in earnest, and in 1947 scored a triumph in the Broadway musical The Chocolate Soldier, where he won a Theatre World Award for his performance.

No. 26. Keith Andes, the tall, raw-boned actor who had a notable career in film, television and stage, died on November 11 at his home in Canyon Country, California. She remained with her stern awash for some time and then began to sink slowly until the rudder apparently hit bottom. The immediate large list to starboard unquestionably was caused by the quick unsymmetrical flooding of starboard tanks and the refrigeration spaces just abaft the engine room on "F" deck combined with a considerable loss of initial stability due to the free surface created. The ship returned to the United States under her own power for final repairs. 25. BLISS never received similar instructions because acquisition was made by the Navy just prior to this operation and time did not permit a stability analysis or investigation. 54, USS Capella AK13 & USS Alhena AKA9 War Damage Report No. ELECTRA - looking forward and to starboard at the shoring for the large patch.

As soon as pumping operations would allow entrance to the engine room everything was washed down with fresh water, followed promptly with an open steam jet. TASKER H. BLISS - AP42/A16-3 - Action Report dated 15 November 1942. This is an authentic 1954 printing of Kenneth Dodson's book Away All Boats. The ship was ordered abandoned over the port (high) side. Flooding directly due to the hits was apparently limited to the immediate vicinity of the machinery spaces as one officer reported that about 20 minutes after the torpedoing no water could be seen in holds 2, 3, 4, 6, 7 or 8 as viewed. 18. 29, USS San Francisco CA38 War Damage Report No. (2) Both had low initial stability. From the engine room the water entered the shaft alley through a leaky door and through unpacked glands around electric cable, and when the shaft alley was flooded, the water entered the after magazines from the shaft alley through an electric cable hole in the deck of the handling room. Fireroom and engine room personnel secured auxiliary machinery and took measures to reduce steam pressure when it became apparent that nothing could be done, and the order was given to abandon ship. The engineer force was split into three sections and worked three shifts 24 hours a day and seven days a week. 37. USS Sanborn (APA-193) was a Haskell-class attack transport acquired by the U.S. Navy during World War II for the task of transporting troops to and from combat areas. This increase in initial stability was caused by the combination of two factors: (a) The freeboard before damage was great enough to permit the ship to sink a large amount without submerging the bulkhead deck. It is possible, however, that the concussion of the second hit literally blew the fire out. 45, USS New Orleans CA32 War Damage Report No. The searchlight platform shook and guys to the stack were snapped. 19, USS South Dakota BB57 War Damage Report No. 3 hold (cargo loading (reference (j)) shown on plate V).
