My cousin and a really good friend of mine were both also nukes. Now they work in nuke plants in the civilian sector.
Sure they were having fun with their active sonar. Most of them do not run around pinging away. WE prefer to sneak in. You would be shocked if you could see how far we could track some ships...... Incredible technology.

Yeah..... i did 12 years and would have done civilian nuclear power but I prefer Western US. Not as many opportunities out here, but got in the Semiconductor industry ......... 15 years ago! Still at it! Industry full of Nukes.....

Question - slightly off kilter here. This is regarding the front stake holes. Do you just carve them out yourself if you need access to them?

Lusid, I do not remember anyone doing it themselves, although I do not think it would be a difficult thing to do. Everyone I have seen that has decided to remove the spot did so by taking to the dealership. I am sure it can be done, however, as the guides are there as are the stake pockets.

Just installed mine. They look great and serv their purpose well. I hope I never have to take them out because I banged on them pretty good to get them to sit as flush as possible. Big thanks as this definitely cleans up the holes nicely.

I'm a 'plank owner' on SSBN 740, (The Rhode Island). She was commissioned July '94 but I'm not Navy. I did my actual service on land in the Army ('65 - '67) .

Funny, because the first Sub I served on, USS Henry M. Jackson (SSBN 730) was originally due to be commissioned the Rhode Island. However, the Senator from Washington State who was instrumental in helping the funding process and push for the Trident Sub program passed away so they changed the name before commissioning and pushed the Rhode Island out to 740.

Gentlemen,

Snag hit. So there have been two people that have had the stake pocket covers come loose over time and one who lost the cover due to the looseness. One of these members were sent a prototype to see how they fare in that part of the country, the other I will provide covers for when we can verify the new design works.

Yet another design I have put into my truck state covers. So far the standard type (the ones I had in my truck for months now) seem to hold up fine, but the flush type are the ones with the issues.

For those of you with flush mount style already (@captain.russ , @caspian , @Southside , @CRAIGER , @edsd90 , @trlboss , @dentdave , @HeliCarson , @Masplumber , @schultzy375 , @Sentry_FE10 , @USMC7011 , @jabberszl1 ), Please take a look at yours and if loose, please apply some two sided adhesive tape, like 3M, and do so just under the lip at the top of these units. That should be what is needed to stop any further loosening. If you cannot get a hold of some 2 sided tape, please PM me and I can cut you a length and send in an envelope. If you are not comfortable with that, we can put you on the list for replacements when the new design is done, OR refund money. I am an honest guy and want what is best for everyone.

Those that are on waiting list: Please be patient as we resolve the issue and overcome the yet unexplained shrinkage issue. We will try a few different iterations to come to a conclusion and get the improved version out there. We are considering changing material type as well, but that requires even more time as the melting point is higher.

Stay tuned. More to follow. SORRY to everyone out there. Really just wanted to share something cool and now feel like I am letting you down.
