"...One could read the rank by looking at the belly..."

I was thinking the same thing. Guy in glasses was the man. His chief underling was the guy pounding on the console.

Did I see rope lying in the passageways? Guard rails on deck were an invitation for man overboard drills.

Not sure what to think of the SAM missile system. Functioning? Well...sorta, I suppose. Dockside citizens beware.
