R-21 SS-98 - History


(Submarine No. 98: dp. 495 (surf.), 598 (subm.), l. 175' b. 16'8", dr. 13'11", s. 14.4 k. (surf.), 11 k. (subm.), cpl. 29 a. 1 3", 4 18" tt.; el. R-21)

R-21 (Submarine No. 98) was laid down 19 April 1917 by the Lake Torpedo Boat Co., Bridgeport, Conn., Launched 10 July 1918; sponsored by Mrs. Dallas C. Laizure and commissioned 17 June 1919, Lt. Comdr. Morris D. Giimore in command.

Attached to Submarine Division 1, R-21 operated out of the submarine base at New London, Conn. She conducted diving and approach tactical training in Long Island Sound, and conducted several training cruises in the vicinity of Block Island with other units of the division. Following a recruiting cruise to New Haven and Bridgeport 20-27 August, she returned to New London for upkeep.

R-21 continued practice dives off the coast into the fall with a eall at the Torpedo Station, Newport, R.I., 21 October. She departed New London 1 November 1919 in eomnany with R-22, R-24, R-27, and Eagle No. Sl. Proceeding via Hampton Roads, Wilmington, N.C., Savannah, Key West, Havana Cienfuegos, and Guarltarlamo Bay, Cuba; and Kingston, Jamaica, she arrived at Coco Solo, C.Z., 11 December.

Following several practice dives out of Coeo Solo, she transited the Panama Canal 27 January 1920 for dryDock work at Balboa, C.Z. Returning to Coco Solo, R-21 continued to refine her diving, approach, and torpedo tseties through the spring and summer. During two trips to Almirante Bay, 30 March-2 April and 17-20 May, she practiced with other units of the first division.

Designated SS-98 in July, R-21 again transited the eanal to Balboa 27 Sentember for a month in dryDock. UDon returning to Coco Solo, she was laid up for 11 months of extensive overhaul. She sailed north on 26 September 1921 via Guantanamo Bay, Key West, and New York, arriving New London on 27 October. She sailed to Portsmouth, N.H. 27 December for refitting.

A sueeessful test dive on 26 May 1922 meant that R-21 could return to New London. Through the spring and summer months she operated out of New London and Newport.

The craft of Submarine Division 1 sailed from New London 2 October 1922 for Coco Solo. R-21 served as flagship as the boats cruised via Hampton Roads and Guantanamo. After 11 days out, R-24 developed engine trouble and was temporarily taken under tow by R-21. The Cuba-bound steamer SS Bethore rendered assistance, and R-21 arrived at Coco Solo 27 October.

R-21 spent the rest of her active Navy days operating out of Coeo Solo and undergoing repairs at Balboa. She sailed from Coco Solo for the last time 15 February 1923 in company with a tender, Quail, and eight other submarines. Two days later R-21's engines malfunctioned and she was towed into Guantanamo by the tender. Repairs were quickly aceomplished and R-21 sailed for Philadelphia on the 22d, arriving there via Charleston 9 November 1923.

Decommissioned at the Philadelphia Navy Yard 21 June 1924, R-21 was struck from the Navy list 9 May 1930 and sold for scrap 30 July 1930.

Camaro By The Letters: RS, SS, And Z28

If you’ve been a Camaro owner, builder, or restorer over the past five decades, you know what the letters RS, SS, and Z28 mean. For those who have recently discovered their passion for Chevrolet’s longtime Mustang-fighter, here’s a quick tutorial.

Hideaway headlights and upgraded trim for just $105 extra? That was how Chevy packaged and priced the first Rally Sport option in 1967 — something that Ford didn’t come close to matching. (This 1967 Camaro sales brochure excerpt, and the other Camaro sales brochure images seen in this story, are courtesy www.lov2xlr8.no

RS stands for “Rally Sport,” which was an option package on the first-generation Camaro, starting in 1967. For just $105 more than the base Camaro price, it included dress-up items like chrome wheel well and roof drip rail moldings, a wide, lower body molding, RS emblems, and its most distinctive feature — hideaway headlights.

In its first year, the “Command Performance” Camaro came in three flavors — standard (background), Rally Sport (middle-right) and Super Sport (foreground).

Also priced at $105 that year was the Super Sport (SS) package. Since mid-year 1961, all steel-bodied, front-engine-powered Chevy car lines had a Super Sport version. The SS was equipped with bucket seats, distinctive SS wheel covers and exterior trim, as well as engine options ranging from cruiser 327 cubic-inch small-blocks to tire-frying 396 and 427 cubic-inch big-blocks, all of which came under a distinctive SS-specific hood. The Camaro SS option was the only way to get a 350 cubic-inch small-block that first year, with the 325 horsepower 396 cubic-inch engine joining the SS option list in November of 1966.

At some point, Chevrolet’s Product Planning department asked, “How about offering the RS and SS packages together?” (This was when more options meant more money could be made on a car by Chevrolet and the dealer.) So, ordering the RS and SS package together, created the RS/SS. The SS emblems replaced the RS emblems, while keeping the Rally Sport’s hideaway headlights

This strategy continued through 1968 and 1969. The most famous RS/SS being the Pacesetter Camaro built as replicas of the Indianapolis 500’s Official Pace Car. The Z28 could be ordered with the Rally Sport package, but not the SS option.

Here’s a look at the 1969 Camaro Pacesetters, and the Chevy trucks provided to the Speedway’s safety crews for the 1969 Indianapolis 500-mile race. Image courtesy www.camaros.org

For Camaro’s second generation, a distinctive front grille and split-bumper combination became the Rally Sport’s signature styling cue. And, yes, it was also available with the SS package, at least through the 1973 model, when the last second-gen Camaro SS was built.

Reason[22]: Bitcoin Sent on a Wrong Address, Can't be Recovered

How many times have you mistakenly chosen 20,000 instead of 2,000 while withdrawing cash using an ATM? Most of us make this mistake often because our mind is programmed such that our fingers get out of control the moment it sees a keypad. Our fingers just feel like hitting a key as fast as possible.

This care-free attitude and too much trust on machines is still bearable on centralized banking systems, where you can file a dispute if you mistakenly add an extra zero to the amount sent to a recipient during online banking or cheque deposit but with cryptocurrencies, this habit can cause you unrecoverable loss.

Bitcoins are often sent mistakenly to wrong addresses like in the following scenarios:

  • You can send bitcoins to a wrong address by mistakenly copy/pasting an address you previously sent funds to. As happened here where someone mistakenly sent over $8000 to a wrong address.
  • Entering a mistyped but mathematically valid address that passes the checksum. The funds will exist in the blockchain but will belong to none. Thus permanently lost.
  • You copied a bitcoin address but since your computer was compromised by a malware, what you pasted was the hackers address as happened here.

You can also accidently add a higher amount ( like an extra zero ) while sending bitcoins to a freelancer than you intended. Like paying $100 instead of $10 or $255 instead of $25.

The only way by which bitcoin can be received back is to request the person to whom you have accidently sent the bitcoins to refund it. It’s up to the sincerity of the receiver to issue a refund or not.

HMAS Melbourne (R21) - Operational History - 1970–1976

During the 1970s and early 1980s, replacing parts became an increasing problem. Components were failing due to wear and age, but the companies responsible for manufacturing the parts had gone out of business during the previous twenty years, sometimes immediately after World War II ended. The carrier's engineers often resorted to making replacements from scratch.

In 1970, Melbourne participated in three major inter-navy exercises: Sea Rover with SEATO forces in the South China Sea, Bersatu Padu with British Commonwealth forces off Malaysia, and Swan Lake with the Royal Navy and Royal New Zealand Navy off Western Australia. During this year, the carrier also visited Japan to participate in Expo '70, and was hit by Manly ferry South Steyne while alongside at Garden Island, causing minor damage to both vessels. Melbourne was out of service for most of 1971 while she underwent refits, which concluded in early August. In mid-1971, the Australian military's Joint Planning Committee considered using Melbourne as a transport in order to help complete the withdrawal of the Australian Task Force from Vietnam before the end of 1971. While the Army supported this proposal, the Navy successfully argued against its implementation, claiming that transporting troops and cargo would be misusing Australia's only active aircraft carrier, and would prevent Melbourne from participating in several major multi-national exercises. The refit concluded in late 1971, with the carrier participating in the first RIMPAC exercise, RIMPAC 71, before the end of the year.

Operations in 1972 commenced with a three month deployment to Southeast Asia. During this deployment, Melbourne led a fleet of 17 ships from the RAN, Royal Navy, Royal New Zealand Navy, US Navy, Philippine Navy, and Royal Thai Navy in Exercise Sea Hawk. This was followed by goodwill visits to numerous Southeast Asian ports, including Hong Kong, Jakarta, Manila, Singapore, and Surabaya, before Melbourne returned to Sydney at the end of April. The carrier spent May performing exercises off the New South Wales coast, during which she was called on to rescue three fisherman who had been stranded at sea for the previous two days. In August, Melbourne sailed for Hawaii to participate in RIMPAC 72. At the conclusion of this exercise, Melbourne proceeded to Japan on a diplomatic visit, then sailed to the Philippines to exercise with SEATO ships. During this deployment, a fire ignited inside the ship's main switchboard. The carrier returned to Australia on 27 November after 101 days at sea, and underwent a seven month refit. On 24 August 1973, Melbourne returned to Hawaii to participate in RIMPAC 73. She returned to Australia on 12 October, but sailed out ten days later to participate in Exercise Leadline off Malaysia, before reaching Sydney again in December.

Melbourne began 1974 by transporting 120 Australian soldiers to a temporary assignment with an American infantry battalion based in Hawaii. She then sailed to San Francisco to collect 12 new Chinook and five UH-1 Iroquois helicopters for the Royal Australian Air Force, arriving in Australia with her cargo in April. In June, the carrier took part in Exercise Kangaroo in the Coral Sea, before returning to Sydney in July. On 11 July, the passenger liner SS Australis hit and damaged Melbourne in Sydney Harbour. In November, the carrier took part in disaster relief exercises. These were prophetic, as on the night of 24–25 December 1974, Cyclone Tracy destroyed the city of Darwin. Melbourne's crew were recalled immediately from leave, the ship was loaded with supplies, and the carrier departed Sydney on 26 December in the company of HMAS Brisbane. Melbourne, Brisbane, and eleven other ships were deployed as part of the largest peace-time rescue effort ever organised by the RAN: Operation Navy Help Darwin. Melbourne remained off Darwin until 18 January 1975, acting as operational headquarters and a helicopter base. During this operation, the seven Wessex helicopters embarked on Melbourne performed 2,493 flights, carrying 7,824 passengers and 107 tons of cargo.

Following Navy Help Darwin, Melbourne participated in RIMPAC 75, then returned to Sydney for a fourteen month refit, which was delayed by industrial action at the dockyard. While moored in Sydney Harbour, on 24 July, Melbourne was struck by Japanese cargo ship Blue Andromeda. While working up following the refit, Melbourne and HMAS Torrens provided assistance to MV Miss Chief off the coast of Bundaberg, Queensland on 16 August 1976. In October, Melbourne participated in Exercise Kangaroo II, before sailing to her namesake city for the carrier's 21st birthday celebrations, then returning to Sydney on 5 November.

Ranger Tug R-21EC – The Little Tug that Could

Since its introduction, the Ranger R-21EC has earned a loyal following among enthusiasts who enjoy cruising at its classic best. And today it&rsquos even better, with a boatload of improvements from greater interior volume and higher speed, to more responsive handling and convenient storage spaces.

Owners of this popular vessel have always measured fuel use in pints per hour, not gallons. With a refined hull design, the new Ranger R-21EC delivers significantly higher speeds and even better economy, bringing more cruise destinations within easy reach. And with a new cabin design that&rsquos eighteen inches longer and seven inches wider, there&rsquos room inside for pilot and companion seats, head, galley cabinet and a larger berth&hellipgreater comfort to make the trip all the more worthwhile.

There is no doubt that this cuddy cabin, day cruiser, overnighter will stand out from the crowd. For those in the know, its practicality and efficiency brings pure enjoyment to their personal boating. The fiberglass cockpit of the R21-EC (the &ldquoEC&rdquo referring to the new Extended Cabin design) accounts for almost exactly half of the length of the boat. The pilothouse area of the cabin is designed for two persons with the helm to starboard immediately forward of the refrigerator and a passenger seat with footrest to port just ahead of the standard galley with sink, pressure water, and single-burner stove. A comfortable and roomy-looking V-berth with center-mounted porta-potti is a couple of steps below and forward.

Inspired by a traditional Bristol Bay trawler design, the Ranger R-21EC will never go out of style, ensuring both lasting appeal and maximum resale value. Easily trailerable, this boat rewards its owner with a level of versatility that few other cruisers can match.

Lastly, if you don&rsquot mind being the center of attention wherever you launch, dock, cruise, or anchor, and if you are ready for something relaxing, relatively efficient, to fully enjoy every boating moment, and savor every sensual pleasure of your boating days, then a Ranger Tug R-21EC could be the boat for you.
