Maybe you recall seeing my fancy orange shipping tube that was used to get my ship to this years Bruhaha in Louisiana; well it failed me. Good news for UPS was they had it available to break down a couple locked doors, using it as a battering ram. These pictures are just a small example of what was done. Hull was crushed up and down both sides, hull twisted, breaking the subdeck, main deck was broken and one shaft bent. I want to share many, many thanks to everyone that attended as they got my ship back into operating condition and I only missed one sortie. Pete did all the hull repair, Tyler loaned me so many parts I lost count and Kevin rebuilt my guns and got them working. No way was the Axis team going to be out done by UPS, so they made sure to do their fair share of damage to the Des Moines. Above is proof they got my ships into action for both days of the event. It was really a lot of fun! Thanks again to all who attended and helped.
