Cary Grant, Tony Curtis.

and the great line = "Out of confusion comes profits". said by Tony, the boat's "scrounger".

That is the movie. I remember our boat was often that color when we put the red lead on before the finish coat. Once we painted the inside T**tie pink sand. The old man thought it was nice. It was very hard to keep clean but it was "different" than the usual light green.

a side bar - behaviorists found, some years ago, that painting police drunk tanks hot pink has a very effective calming impact on drunks and drug addicts

The old man must have read that study and applied it to his crew!

Thanks for your service. I have a submarine "jones" and love stories of the dark, deep.

Patrick Robinson writes great submarine thrillers (ala Tom Clancey). A number of them deal with Iranian and Kilo class subs, coincidentally.
