You silly Cone, remember:

"slow is fast"
"hurry up and wait"

Good luck on the fix. I never worry much. I just remember that everything is fixable, short of it catching on fire.

Hello everyone, I hope that everybodies Christmas was a good one. The look and smile on my 3 yr old son's face yesterday was the best Christmas present that I have had in a long time. Another good present was the results of my repair to my hull plug.

The 2 pieces came back together like a charm. After cutting a V chennel out at the breakpoint after the glue dried, I fille it with joint compound and sanded. I rinsed and repeated twice. After a quick check with the stern contour jig, I found that a little sanding at the break is all I needed. And hey Kevin, it didn't catch fire, so I am good. :lol: Yep, Slow is fast. There has to be a procedure for this somewhere.......

I will post more pics and progress after the new year. I have to make the obligatory trip home to PA so Mom and Dad can see the Grandkids. Happy New year everyone!

When surfaced, the bridge access hatch can be optionally open or shut, however, when submerged it is required to be shut. (Really a no s***t precaution from a procedure in use in the sub fleet today.)

Actually yes there is a procedure for this. It was written by Steve on sub pirates. I reccomend getting a copy. It is full of hints and tips.
