    The other trivia seemed dead so I thought I'd start a new one.
    What two events in the Pacific almost got Admiral Hasley court martialed during WWII?
    **EDIT** I should have said, " What two similar events". Sorry!:confused:

    Yes, Hasley got hit by two hurricanes, and it almost got him court martialed.
    You're up to bat, Tugboat.

    I thought that the Hurrican was one and Leaving the defense of Leyte Invasion to Taffy 5 was the other.

    That's another reason, but I was talking about the two hurricanes. Good guess though.:)
    I guess it's Von Tugboat's turn to baffle us all.[​IMG]

    Taffy getting left unattended did not raise the specter of Court Martial. Raised eyebrows, but no judicial rumblings. I am trying to find a question that's hard enough that it can't be googled, but easy enough that it's not impossible.

    Oops, didn't know that. Take your time and find a good one.
    Can't wait,

    I figured I'd try to get the trivia started again. If you were going to do one Tugboat, just delete this. ( I'm sure you know how to do that)
    Since my last question was sort of confusing, I'm just going to post a picture.

    Name the ship.

    My guess based on a couple factors:
    has bow torpedo tube + has four screws + upside down + inline rudders? = scuttled German battlecruiser (Scapa Flow)
    the proportions are long so my official guess... Derfflinger

    You got it ,Mike, and you're up. I thought it would take a little longer for you guys to guess that one.

    I have a passion for hull shapes and there are only few ships to be inverted like that. Ones involved in Scapa Flow and Pearl Harbor stand out and that hull screamed German:)

    My question: What 3 shaft ship claimed the fastest trial speed to date before ww1 and what was that speed?

    I going to make a stab at it, but I'm probably not right. My guess is the German battleship Konig ( or one of her class, I can't remember which) at 23 knots.
    That's my guess,

    Novik - Russian Light Cruiser. Captured by the Japanese during the Russian/Japanese war after going aground. It was still capable of 19 knots on a single shaft. (The wing engines were too badly damaged) The speed cited in the Wikipedia article seems slow. Unfortunately my refrence books are packed up for the move and it's the best source I have handy.
