Holy Loch Update


Our Super Canopus Lifer Jim Hulse recently decided he wanted a Guinness, so he left his home in Buffalo New York and went to Sinbad’s.


While there he took a few pictures to share with his shipmates. Click on plaque to go to his photo page:


Rota Harbor Update


A third pier was under construction in February 2009.

Fred Beebe (HT2 - 1976-1980 - R-1 Flex Hose and Pipe Shop) sent us a set of photos of the completed pier.


Not sure how he came by it.  When Ed Pado and I were there in 2009, we were told we may be shot if we were seen with a camera!

Old Canopus Cruise Book


Amazing AS-9 cruise book of China, Japan and Philippines during the 1930's.

Although there a lots of pictures of the old Canopus, subs and other ships, some of pictures are disturbingly graphic depictions of the results of war and famine.
