    I want to say, "I'd let them work on my rear end", but that sounds to homo.

    Regarding the boiler, my brother said:

    Those are most likely 600# boilers with a controlled super-heat section. We had Forster wheeler 400# modified "D"boilers with uncontrolled super-heat.

    He was on the USS Tidewater. Actually, there's a lesson there for young people starting out. My brother joined the Navy with several friends. They all went for "easy" assignments but my father encouraged my brother to do something that would apply to future work. After their stint in the Navy, his friends were cook's assistants. My brother left the engine room of a ship and applied for a state license to work on boilers, passed their highest test. With that gold license he was able to bypass all the people with seniority at a power company and start as a control operator. He's retired now, very happy for all that time he sweated in the Navy.
