+1, Russ. That's some real machinery.

Warms my old snipe's heart. She carries an amazing amount of aux equipment. Thanks.

I haven't heard the term 'snipe' since I left the Navy during Vietnam...it means engine room mechanic? I was in P3 aircraft and I think you guys called us 'airedales' or something equally unkind.

Impressive!
Don't think I want to be below sea level in a ship, behind a watertight door, that requires electricity to open.

Basically applies to any engineering rating, Ken. At one point I was a submarine reactor operator - so a "bubblehead nuc snipe" - you could write a book about Navy (not necessarily nautical) terminology. As far as aviation - brownshoe, rotorhead - wasn't much interface between you guys and us.

I was used to being in the engine room below sea level, Ted. But you're right, electric operated WTD is unsettling. Wonder what the manual operation looks like?

Thanks for ER [and other on board locations] video. I'd need cell ph and Siri for directions to get around. Heck of a layout. Supreme Engineering Galore!!
