Gather ’round, my fellow tars and pour yourself a drink (preferably a San Miguel). What you’re about to read is the largest collection of sea stories ever gathered in one place. Best of all, these stories come from fellow USS Enterprise nukes and engineers. No one can deny that the Big E was the greatest warship ever built, and that the guys who gave her her steam were the best nukes and engineers in the fleet. We were also pretty darn funny. In fact, our sense of humor was legendary. It was the one thing that helped get us through it all.

More than just sea stories, these are the tales of our youth, the recollections of life-long friends, and random memories of strange people and faraway places.
