Better post up in case it's a rule I didn't catch. I'm an ex dirt racer (old guy), back on the street. Always thought the 51 was cool. Got a good deal, it quit at about 60 miles, maybe there was a reason it was cheap. I get it dialed and be posting up ride report this season. Also, for Subsailor, I did time on AS41, he'll know.

Yep, did time on her, CV64(name guess...), and Special Boat Unit 11. Are unskilled sailors riding bikes, Squid Squids?

Most of the time, my boat was serviced by the USS Proteus AS-19.

However the Proteus had to go into the yards at one time and the McKee stood in briefly.
When the boomers were withdrawn, they deployed the Frank Cable AS-40 to service the attack boats.
