Boats

Boats, in this case bigada boats. Where's our carriers. They don't wear a red and white striped shirt to pick they out of the vast ocean.

The Navy promised one will be there soon... with a wistful postscript of, if we only had a dozen more of these 10 Billion dollar boats.

Our first carrier the USS Langley, a 13,000 ton converted battleship in 1927, which was it's 7th year in service. Notice the lack of super structure above deck and the lack of side walls on the hangar deck.
Our second carrier, the USS Lexington built in 1927, had the Conning Tower superstructure typical of carriers ever since. But armored hanger deck walls and steel flight decks didn't come until WW II.

Bruce's comment got me looking for pictures of the hangars in modern carriers. And I came upon this one. Does anyone know what the different colored shirts mean in this photo of an "all hands" meeting in a hangar 3 years ago? You've got purple, green, red, blue, and camo. Hi Res picture here.

Right, my bad. The 2nd and 3rd carriers, Lexington and Saratoga, were built on battle cruiser hulls.

The different colors represent different jobs on the flight deck.
Purple Fuel
Red Ordinance
Green Catapults and Arresting Gear
I Think

If that ain't correct it's damn close.

I think the AirBoss wears yellow. Maybe.





ETA: Very good explainer here.

From that link not everyone with the same color shirt has the same duties or area of responsibility, like I figured they would. The colors seem to separate by authority and areas of expertise. The yellow shirt yells, hey blue shirt get away from the bombs and fuel.

What do you do with the car part at the boat ramp once the boat's been launched? Presumably taking with it the "over the road" (and up the ramp and into the parking lot) power plant (but leaving the winch...)?
