oh shit, when I got to BHR early last year they were on a return from cruise to Sasebo then homeport change to San Diego. It was a total clusterfuck for the command to get the families of Sailors moved to San Diego. Once I checked onboard, I found that the CoC were straight dumbfucks (IM4 support equipment division). BHR later in the year got forced to do RIMPAC 2018; the CHENG warned the region's admiral (embarked) that the engines wouldn't last to Hawaii if at all out of the harbor. Fucker said go and we broke down 1st day of exercise after pulling out of Pearl Harbor, dumbass deserved it. We were stuck for 3 weeks in Hawaii acting as comms and everyone including the skipper were PISSED. Admiral slunk off the boat when we pulled back into San Diego. Then forces us to do Fleet Week San Francisco to replace Boxer (to save pride too.) It was a nightmare.
There was so much seaman jargon in there I feel like I received a salt water bukaki! I would love to see a show depicting the life of a seaman adrift in the ocean! The only time I spent on a boat ;) was a ferry class and I had no duties other than eat and sleep.... it was nice! I did witness some very different situations on board though and that was only a week.
Think 12 hours on, 12 hours off 7 days a week unless you hit port. trying to use common sense while looking over your shoulder to see if some Tight Ass Quality Assurance fuckhead is creeping around or behind you like Jason fuckin Vorhees minus machete replaced with FOD-free clipboard. Or dealing with a self absorbed Chief who's willing to gundeck quals for his Sailors just to look good for next promotion look.
