As former NSG, I can assure you that any slip of classified material will not be noticed or understood by most. I know since I’ve regularly submitted classified skinny to Washington in the past .

You mean, like duct-taping a watch officer to the overhead in the forward torpedo room?

(Don't know whether that's true, but the young man who told the story swore that it was...)

Either that or EB-taping some nub to MS-5 and then growling Maneuvering to get them to cycle it a few times :)

-or-

Racking out Midshipmen on summer cruise by donning an EAB, ripping open their rack curtain and yelling “HEY! This one is still alive!”

-or-

We once had then-Congressman Bob Dornan and then-Senator Al Gore and a few of their flunkies in board. While sitting on Crew’s Mess waiting to PERSTRANS them off, the announcement came over the 1MC: “Prepare to surface without air”. Without a word, all of the blueshirts on the messdecks casually broke out and donned EABs.

-or-

Inport, after hearing over the 1MC “The ship will be shooting waterslugs”, we outfitted a shiny new butterbar with a harness, a deck crawler, a kapok, a bucket and a boathook. His job, he was told, was to stand on the bow and retrive any fish that were killed by the water slugs so that they could be reported to the EPA. (The XO was less than impressed when he arrived at an inopportune time).

Well, Doohickey, ya got me on at least one of those. I was a groundpounder, so am not familiar with all the terminology - MS5?

Still, that’s okay, ‘cause I get the idea! That’s like us telling a nug to get a fox-tail and dustpan, then go clean the RF Dust off’n the bandaids (1.5 meter bi-directional antennas halfway up the tower at Field Station Berlin).

Did ya have to call the Screen Actor's Guild after this one?

Okay, MS-5 is the the main steam cross-connect valve. It’s basically a big-ass valve hangs in the overhead about seven feet above the deck between the turbine generators. It allows a single steam loop to run both turbines.

Anyway, because it’s hydraulically operated, the handwheel is on a ratchet and pawl so the handwheel doesn’t spin when it’s cycled. Plus, it’s a knocker valve, so there’s a little bit of play in it when the ball lock pin is removed. It makes a very ominous noise when operated, expecially when someone’s attached to it.
