|56k||USS Seattle (AOE-3) transferring her stores to USS Detroit AOE-4 in heavy seas while heading toward Hurricane Agnes in June 1972. USS Detroit was heading to the Mediterranean Sea while Seattle was heading to her homeport of Norfolk VA. ."We hadn't seen the worst of it, couple of days later we saw for three days, 40'-70' swells, 115 knot winds, cracked hull, loss of a water tight door, ladder, canvas and the ensign was nothing more than six stripes and about 30 stars. Sea water running around inside, couldn't stand up, sit down or sleep. Heck of a ride all inside of the Devils Triangle."||Tom Nutt QM2 USS Seattle|
