I remember in 1973 an explosion occurred in the machine shop at Coast Guard Base Cape May.

Turns out a couple of machinist mates were blow torching a WWII torpedo they fished out.

-—in the boat shop? Just trying to hop up the admiral’s yacht with a new supercharger, I expect. Forgot to read the manual? The only thing that can blow up in a boat shop is a can of really expensive paint.
