That William D Porter story is unreal!

We had several favorites...relative bearing grease, 50ft of chow line, the golden rivet, and overhead buffer, but my favorite was when the Captain would set the "Mail Buoy Watch" over the 1-MC for the new sailor making him wear a helmet, life jacket and carry the mail buoy hook while stationed up forward so the bridge had a clear view...
