1969-1970
Contributed by Walter (Grit) Joyce:




"Never went to Med as the battery cables shorted out and was spliced back in Charleston. That was really what broke the back of the Cubera. We then just made Gitmo trips and local ops out of Key West. That was the home port when I was on her. Here’s a newspaper cutout of us sinking beside Tender (Gilmore AS-16). The engineman was changing out a backup engine intake valve and the main valve didn’t hold. We took on water up to the deck plates and had to pressurize the after engine room." -- Walter (Grit) Joyce
