    Re: resetting clocks on big ships
    From: Clarence Smith

    When I was in the Navy many years ago sailing from Long Beach to Japan and
    back, we changed the clocks at 1700 ( the first dog watch, you got a three
    hour watch instead of two)  when setting them back and 0100 when setting
    them ahead ( You got a three hour watch instead of four - The only times I
    enjoyed midwatches.)
