Dolphin, Nice Picture.
Hey Tom Dougherty (from an earlier topic) did you notice this boat has counter measures forward and aft?

What's FIFTY for? Did the CO turn 50 or what?

It means her 50th patrol. I don't know of a CO that is 50. It's possible but not likely, most COs are really kind of young.

Hey Don,
You're right, two sets. Also the forward set appears to have been moved back so it is no longer alongside the sail.
