Thank God for the pumps that pumped the water out of the bilge 24hrs a day. The Fearless was one tough Minesweeper. Hated to see her decomissioned.

I can honestly say, I learned a lot about people on that ship. When you live with 70 guys, you become close---hopefully. I hope that I was close to some; otherwise, I had some intriguing experiences on board, during my year and a half. Hope to see you all in the next life.

Comments:Frank, in 1958-59, I was the Deck/Gunnery Officer on USS Leader (MSO 490) and I have been in After Steering of that blessed ship, on many occasions, both during inspections and when repairs were being made to the steering gear.

Now, I admit that my 73 year old brain may be somewhat addled, at times, and memory fades as time goes by but I cannot, for the life of me, recall a wheel anywhere near that size, in After Steering or even in the Pilot House.

In your signature you describe yourself as "Marine Surveyor & Consultant ". I suggest that you find some evidence somewhere to certify the origin of the brass wheel you have resurrected and converted into a table. I seriously doubt that it came from USS Leader (MSO 490).

Comments:I was stationed aboard MSO490 from Apr 1984- Dec 1985 and worked in the forward Engine Room. I was a 2nd class while on board and was present on the cruise to Panama with Illusive. The storm on the return throught the Carribean was massive and memorable. The Leader First Stopped in Cuba as mentioned in on of the stories I read here, Before entering port, we had our swim call. I remember the 50 cal. was set up for a shark watch and we went swimming and while about 10- 15 sailors was in the water, the handrail supporting the cargo net we used for getting back aboard broke and everything had to be fished and reattached. After Gitmo, we went to Nassau for 4 days liberty, and then to Panama, passed through to the Pacific and spent a week doing exercises, then back through the canal. This was when it got rough, seemed like a lifetime of tossing about but I don't remember how long it actuaaly was. We stopped at Cuba again and Illusive went back towards home and we went to Puerto Rico for another tasking. After this we returned to Charleston. During my time aboard, the Leader went as far north as Boston(moored alongside Old Ironsides), as far south as Panama, East to Puerto Rico, and west Charleston (being slightly further west than the Pacific entrance to the Canal). I left the ship and the Active duty Navy in Dec. 1985. I returned to the minesweeping community in 1988 in the reserves attached to Helicoptor minecountermeasures unit 19 in Alameda Ca. and spent another 7 years there in the tactical support division.

Quite a four year cruise! I was an RD2/RD3/RD2 (that's right!). Great shipmates and experiences. Crossing the T with Typhoon Faye, successfully—without loss of life—radar navigating the tricky San Bernadino Strait during the night in near typhoon conditions, Market Time, good liberty with great buddies like the Willoughby brothers, Frank Cean, Gerald Harjo, Mark Bradley, Bob Magee, John Merina, et al. Oh yeah water hours—I remember tracking rain squalls so we could intercept them and have freswater showers. Canvas-bottomed racks where "trice up" really meant something! Enough of this...
I got married in July 1966. Judy and I have two children(Tobin and Kristina)and six grandkids. I retired in Oct.1988 as an OSCM(SW). This is a wonderful site! Leo "Stewburner" Najera, Mark Bradley and I have made contact. Hopefully I will be hearing from more of you.
