    The USS Alarm used a propulsion system called a “Fowler wheel”. I could not find any info on who this Fowler person is.
    The propulsion method is called a Cyclorotor or a “Voith–Schneider” propeller because of the German company that makes them today.
    I am told that the “Fowler wheel” vanes where inspired by the shape of a dolphins tail.

    So you have the ships name and it’s propulsion system, so all that’s left is the weapons systems and if you want the answer I would ask the Housatonic.

    New question:
    Of all the people interred aboard ship at Pearl Harbor only one was a baby girl. Who knows her story?

    I don’t know if this is a hard question or is this quiz not as popular as it once was, too bad, if it is I have enjoyed it and learned a heck of a lot by following it, it would be sad to see it go.

    Below is the story of “USS Utah’s Baby Nancy”

    I think the issue may be more lack of interest in WAB due to technical difficulties recently.

    I try but can't get on here as much as I used to.

    I agree the WBA is very slow or unavailable at times. Maybe we should start a “Go Fund Me” page to get them better bandwidth.

    I also wondered if that was why I get no responses to question so this time I tracked the views and found that the question got over 5,000 views so not sure what to believe.

    I would question if those 5000 views were actually by people and not bots scouring the web for photos.

    I think WAB has simply lost people due to the issues dealing with being able to login in at any given time. I seem to be back to doing well except after 2300 hours PST. I used to be the "night crew" as someone once put it but now I have to get in earlier.

    An interesting story of the Utah which is pretty much forgotten. Being on the far side of Ford Island means out of sight out of mind.
