That pic was about 2 hours ago. It is flat coming down now!!! OC' s poles have save my awning and most everything under it. We went over to Mayport Navy Base and got a close up look of the carrier and the bottom fell out. Came back to a river running through the site. It was very windy and heavy rain. Support poles working like a champ!!

OC does good work - just doesn't get all the credit he deserves sometimes

Question - those Navy carriers have always impressed me - does that carrier in the pic have its full compliment of aircraft aboard?

Yes it does. We were about 200 yards from it when we went to the base. I should have gotten a picture. I pulled the number up on the Internet to see what ship it was. USS Dwight D. Eisenhower CVN 69 home port, Norfolk, VA.

Thanks - as I said before, those carriers have always been of interest to me.

Two years ago my sons and I went to San Diego and toured the USS Midway. It's amazing the size and engineering that went into that machine and I realize that is one of the older ones.

Of course one bomb from a B52 could send it to the bottom

I think the USS Yorktown in Charleston, SC is the same class as the Midway. I have toured her several times and spent several nights on board as a Boy Scout when I was younger. Spent a night on board with my son when he was a Cub Scout. It is amazing. It's amazing the manpower on board and the ships full capabilities. Makes me proud to be an American!!! It is a powerful image sitting off the coast of a foreign country!!!

Right on - The Midway has what seems to me acres of open space below deck - separate dining halls, barber shops, medical facilities, post office, etc. And just where do they carry all that fuel?

And I never knew that Marines were and I assume still are carried on board the carriers.

I heard a joke about why the Marines are carried, but I won't post it here.

I'm sure I've heard it! I mean as a retired Marine, I've pretty much heard most inter service jokes. I.e., MARINE means My *ss Rides In Navy Equipment. And, yes, the Marines are in the Department of the Navy......the men's department!!

We got Glenn's stab jack legs reinforced, 2 sets of awning pole attaching brackets mounted, 1 set of polished awning poles mounted and his tire ramp brackets mounted on the back bumper and the step brace installed. He is going to move the poles from 1 awning to the other until I can find some more alum pole material.

Pictures for FT Turbs!

Have to install 2 awning locks tomorrow and that will complete the mods.
