Just finished my ImageShack registration and dumped PhotoBucket. So here we go again...enjoy.

My last cruise I was sent to the Caribbean and happened upon the Holy Grail of Fossil Fuel ships...November 1942.

Let me begin:

The hunting grounds

FIRE TUBE ONE!!

Is this not the best thing a U-Boat Captain can witness?

YES! YES!! A T3 with a one way ticket to the bottom. Gives me a stiffy every time.

After my crew and I spank it to the German edition of Playboy and have a smoke, we all gather 'round the 'scope and take in the moon while singing nationalistic songs. Beautiful, isn't it?

Ahhhhhhh yah boy! Recognize!!

Mad tonnage with only 11 ships sunk (10 tankers, 1 C2). All torps were spent and the weather turned to **** so I headed back to St. Nazaire to get a fresh keg for the crew.

PS ~ Hope you can actually see the pics this time http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

The problem is their limited allowance of bandwidth per month. Before long you're posting nice threads with some SWEET pics and then your pics turn into "Exceeded Bandwidth" rectangles without any warning. Weak. Then they want you to upgrade and pay for more BW w/o a reset. Again, weak. At least tell a subscriber you're approaching a limit before your post pics are removed and posts look like s*!t.

Photobucket did warn you that you were approaching your maximum alloted bandwidth (1500MB per month) in an e-mail. If you checked your account details, you would have also noticed that you were reaching your account's maximum bandwidth. Either way, I'm glad to see imageshack is working out for you (you're welcome!).

Were these ships part of a convoy or did you just happen upon a group of them?

Thank you! Your wisdom is indeed "Infectious".

None of these tankers were in convoys. All were either single or in pairs traveling at medium speed. No escorts.

However there was some minimal air cover. But nothing a crew of three with a fly swatter couldn't handle.
