I always thought Beer & Pizza was the stuff of the Gods! (Salami, [or Pepperoni], sausage and Olives, AND extra cheese!). Which beer? Skippers discretion.
Your stories (which I believe!) remind me of that story were in 1958 USS Nautilus (SSN-571) made a stop in Bremmerton, Washington just prior to making it's first try under the Northern Ice cap from the Pacific to the Atlantic. There was a tiny steam leak in the secondary loop to the turbines. They looked everywhere for that leak with a microscope virtually. No luck. Exasperated. After getting permission (Rickover?), they put into the steam loop some of that aluminum powder stuff that costs 2 bucks and stops car radiator leaks. It worked! (if the story is true that is!)
