Sea Stories

My Name is Foo and I am a USN vet and have always enjoyed telling "sea stories" (tales about the Navy during my time and others from friends and history). So I thought I would start a thread for telling them. Please note that when I say sea story it does not necessarily have to be a full scale sea story.
I had a Chief Petty Officer (CPO one of the senior enlisted personnel in the Navy) once tell me that the definition of a good sea story is; 20% fact 20% fiction and 60% balls to tell lies like that! I would appreciate it if the language could be held back a little to prevent the thread from offending someone and being deleted, but I am sure there will a few terms that will push it a little (very little!)
Remember the definition of 'sea story' and within those limits anything can be a sea story!
