Ok, I had an interesting issue, could this be an error? or is Popeye on my boat?

300 Feet of water, and a Jap Destroyer banging away at me, Lost the Starboard Prop and Shaft, Kept maneuvering S L O W L Y, then the XO Comes on, "Prop and Shaft Repaired Sir," WHO IS THIS MECHANIC??? GIVE HIM AN OFFICERS BUNK!, Repaired a screw underway, at 300 feet, with depth charges going off, Never mind the Prop Wash from the other screw..... and NO you cant have him..

I believe they used the washingmachine's agitator as a makeshift prop replacement. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

The damage zones for the props are inside the sub in the maneuvering area at the rear of the sub. Mod's may differ, but the only items that require repair on the surface are the different guns, maybe the scope, etc...
