Those who have looked at the pictures that are posted, will probably have noticed the grill that was built into the deck. This grill was the center piece of every swim call. Once in a while, Capt. Steckler would give us a beer. (Once in a great while!) I am not completely sure who fabricated it, but it was probably an auxilliaryman because they can all weld. My guess, (and it’s only a guess) would be Hoot Gibson.
I heard through the grapevine that the grill is in one of the crewmembers possession. This is a great example of crew modifications that were made to the Sailfish. I would love to hear from anyone with details about the grill.
