In 1967 the only waves I had an opportunity to speak with called our quarters the "cock block".

I also remember "The wave's cage" and I'm quite sure that they had some interesting way of referring to our living quarters as well. Most of the waves I worked with could definitely hold their own!

I don't know when they stopped calling them WAVES but I remember when we called their Barracks "The WAVE Cage".

Now there's a thought! I'd pay money to see Jim, hand on the tiller, shooting the Hudson River rapids in whale boat number 9! Keep that rudder amidships!!

Better than that, the Spring and Summer business is whitewater rafting down the Hudson River! Although, I don't know how well those old wooden hulls would do against the rocks!!

You know, Jim, you could have used these things at your ski lodge.Imagine a whale boat full of people sliding down a snow covered mountain! Better than Six Flags.

Probably ended up in some admiral's fireplace. The Navy never was much on storing or saving things, and I can't think of many practical uses for a few old whale boats so I imagine that buyers would have been in short supply.
