I love stealing from being inspired to post by CDR Salamander.
He’s got a couple of good posts today, a nice mix of the old and the new.
There’s also a half hour video on her.
Next up, LCS-1 recently got a new paint job, designed and applied by the crew for their deployment that starts Friday. *
No, a new paint job doesn’t make the Little Crappy Ship** any better, but having painted a boat a time or two, I appreciate the hard work it is. And at least the black patches hide some of the soot from the diesel exhausts.
*I thought sailing on Fridays was bad.
** A term coined over half a decade ago by Byron the shipfitter, and denizen of Sal’s front porch.
