Newbies were often tweaked during quiet times.
They would be sent on quests to find a roll of water level line, a bucket of relative bearing grease, and a jar of:

Finally found it.

The JCG Shikishima (PLH-31). Designed as an armed escort for plutonium transports from Europe to Japan, she is uniquely armed with AA radar, twin 35 mm, and a 20mm Vulcan. She also enjoys a range of 20k nmi- long - enough to make trips to Europe without resupply.

She looks like one buff cutter, and not at all afraid of some blue water.

In fact, she looks almost like... a destroyer.

no no no!   this is a current Japanese destroyer:

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

I almost went there myself but decided having someone else complete the line of thinking would be better and, as a bonus, it got you to show up...

Really don't see how Bismarck and Richelieu were rated at 3 rounds perminute.  Safety procedures just seem too hard to fathom.
Especially in the crowded quad turrets on Richelieu.
