Gauges and a Razorbacker

MM2 (SS) Bobby Barge of Elmer, Louisiana recalled in vivid detail many adventures aboard the Razorback that took place in 1961-62 when he worked in the forward engine room.

Not only did we hear some good stories from sea, we heard some funny ones from some shore leave adventures! Even some about ole Max Bassett who rode the 394 in the 60s and he was the lucky Razorback vet who accompanied her across the Atlantic on her way to North Little Rock.

Max's dispatches from the trip are available at the city of North Little Rock's website, (click on "maritime museum" link).

Thanks Bobby for making our day with some great history about your ole gal. Visit anytime.
