Job...United States Merchant Marine Ship's Officer (Engineer)
(For Tuberoller): Run and maintained big diesels...Six stories tall, 7 or 9 cylinders, 22,000 to 31,000 horsepower. Four valves per cylinder, each one over eight feet tall. Three Turbochargers, each the size of a VW bug. I could stand in the cylinder, on top of the piston, and not touch anything but with my shoes. Total rev range 0-112 rpm.
Then worked on container cranes, lil bitty things, with one or two locomotive motors (400 horsepower each) to lift cargo containers on and off ships, one every thirty seconds. I had seven cranes to run.
Now retired, I am only just now settling into being a full-time pain in the butt for my wonderful wife.
