    A side-bare to that accident. As a member of our dive-locker aboard the YOSEMITE, our work-boat engineer (a non-diver, but wanting to get into the program), MRSN Bloomer, eventually got his chit approved for Dive school. Years later I learned that he was one of the Special Projects guys killed in that fouled up valve alignment in the hangar that did him and some other guys in. Bloomer was a squared away, hardworking type.

    He and I would spend off-hours in the Tenders machine and carpenter shop building models. Bloomer went from common air-breather, like me and most of the locker, to spooky gas-breather in a few short years. In his short life he saw some weird **** (Ivy Bells comes to mind).

    Careful there. Edward Wiswesser drawings are always suspect. Some of his work is OK. Some of it is horse****.

    I can’t believe I’ve never heard of this boat. I thought I knew them all. 555 does not ring a bell.

    About 28" long.

    According to FXmodels it's made of GRP with resin appendages and is RC-able and is capable of accepting one of David's 2.5" SD.

    Went aboard her in San Diego about 10 years ago. Very well presented as a Museum Boat!
