Vol. 13 No. 11, November 2017

This has been an interesting month. Up in Maine, we are just getting past the longest power outage I've seen since moving here in the early 1990s. We had a strange, powerful wind storm that uprooted trees all over the place, taking out power lines (and cars, and homes ...). On our street, we lost power for a full week.

That, in turn, put me even further behind than I normally am in getting things posted. There are some excellent photo sets in the to-be-posted file -- but for this month, just a single photo, although an interesting one: Subchasers on Mine Sweeping Duty.

Can anyone identify the equipment on these chasers, forward of the pilot house? The un-covered one on the chaser on the far right looks like a large reel. My guess is that these might have been used in tests of using chasers for mine sweeping operations, but it's just a guess.

More coming next month.
