Thanks for the sea story Lex -- I think. Memories and cold sweats.
Somewhere along the line after a real live "no s*&%" GQ I wised up and started sleeping w/ nomex flight suit and boots in the open and ready for a GQ run.
The 1MC still echoes in my mind
"General Quarters! General Quarters!
General Quarters routing is up and forward starboard, down and aft Port."
