Response to Re: Now over all hatches and gun covers

Next time you are on the ship, take notice of rails along the bulkheads, in the passageways, near the overhead and around the ship. You learned to walk or stay in one place by using them. The rails around the racks also kept you from being dumped on the deck. On the Bridge, notice the overhead rails. The helmsman and engineman had to hold on to these in rough seas.
It takes some getting used to but after a few days at sea it becomes second nature.
