Engine Room Flood, 5 September 1967

Part two

By Daniel Rowland

Just saw the post on the engine room flooding after the rupture of a flexible sea water joint in the engine room. Was aboard her as desk force, rememberer no injuries of any kind. Water never got above the port wing-wall. We had an assigned dive team on board at time and they assisted with the sealing of the leak. We were towed to Subic Bay for repairs . Know this is late in th conversation but hope it helps. The photos are from the 1967 Viet Nam cruise book . D. Rowland  SN
