    Byron: In the past the Navy ships pretty well each had
    the CO's orders written from the orders of the higher
    COMNAVSURFORINST, but maybe tailored by the mission
    of the ship. Much of the early ships that I was first on, had little
    money old equipment and knowledge.
    That is why I developed the Franklin Piloting technique.
    The liberty Hull had the a 2WW gyros that move around as you
    turned sped up and even went straight. (USS OUTPOST)
    These ships were underway most of the year as on station
    Radar Pickets, We tracked any incoming radar pip and reported
    the pip if it was not scheduled, a US. Plane would intercept.
    We had Loran A and sextant for navigation. Sun lines all day and stars morning
    and night for months at a time. That was my job, as well we were a weather ship
    making weather reports to the beach.
