So I think a sub does breach the water surface. But you do not want the water to breach the sub's hull!
Broaching means to get sideways to a wave.

When you order running light oil, ensure you are getting the correct type for your light. It comes in red and green

When I was assigned to USCGC CONFIDENCE (WMEC 619) a couple of the Boatswain's Mates made a new eye splice in the 8" double braided nylon towing hawser. The saved about 3' of the old eye and wrapped it in some plastic with an ID label with a National Stock Number and the following nomenclature: Wick, Lamp, Smoking. The following pipe was made over the ship's 1MC: "Now. Seaman Jones, lay to the Chief's Mess." Seaman Jones was seen carrying the smoking lamp wick down to the Bos'n Hole for storage.

Similar to sound sailor's "Make it fast" story.

When I was assigned to CGC VIGOROUS (WMEC 627), my sea detail billet was "Foc's'le, Anchor Detail". That meant I ran the anchor capstan and it's brake when we dropped the hook. We had been anchored about 4 hours, and it was time to weigh anchor. As the anchor broke the water's surface, it was found to be foul with mud. A firehose was used to wash most of the mud off. The order came via the sound powered phone talker to "Hawse the anchor." The Chief Boatswain's Mate heard that as "How's (how is) the anchor." and replied "The anchor is foul." The CO came out on the bridge wing and yelled down "Chief that was an order, not a question."

That's "chumming" with your "chums" so long as they're friendly people.

Bermuda at it's best!!

Funny thing, the name had nothing to do with the animal.....it was the color of the bottle seal. Regardless of the trivia, Goslings is the best sipping rum IMHO!

Friends or enemies they're all the same on that line. You just don't care. One thing you don't have to worry about is your mortality because you have to get better to die.
