Ain't this pretty?

The USS Stennis coming into Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. After a few months of maintenance it will be home ported at Everett.

from the other side in Port Orchard. I was on the water when the Vinson came back. These things are so huge that they almost touch both sides of the passage. They can only sail during high tide, which is why she will be ported in Everett. That way, when the screws get turning she can get out of her fast. Official top speed is in the 35 knot range, but the fact is, when they get going they leave all the other ships behind and throw out a rooster tail higher than the flight deck. I've had people who should know estimate their top speed as double the official. They can plane and that's saying something for a 100,000 ton displacement ship.

PS That's a Washington State ferry in the background headed from Seattle.

On the speed thing..

I was in the VP navy (P-2 Neptune, and P-3 Orion) the same thing applies to the nuke subs, i forget what Jane's (if ya have to ask what janes is go back a grade) listed as top knots on big boomers, but i remember it being a standard joke that we would track them 50% faster.. and on the 35 knot thing remember thats pushing 40 mph.. so can an CVN go 60 mph.. duh, in a heart beat.. When you think of the energy needed to move 5 acres at that speed.. amazing..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

Mummy question

In the old mummy movies the mummy was very
slow moving but always caught his victim.
How did he do it ? yeah I know that's Hollywood.

I watch the show COPS sometimes. I would like to
know how old fat cops catch some of those young
car thieves who bail and run while they are carrying
all that gear on their waist.

Yeah I know they only show the ones who got caught
but I still wonder how they catch anyone.

can churn through some water. There's a pic somewhere on the net of a CVN making a very fast left turn. It's obviously a test run as no planes are on board. These things are over 1,000 feet long and it just pushed the ocean out of the way. Must have been awesome to have been on board.
