Default Towells ??

Greetings From New Orleans ,
Towels ?? Was that all that the green porter was asked to get from the Engine Room ?? All I can say, is that whom ever gave him that order lacked a certain sense of imagination or humor !! When I was there we would have demanded far much more from him to go and retrieve than towels !! We (my generation of DQ Deck Officiers) would have demanded something in the catagory of a Portable Bulkhead Stretcher or a Bucket Of Steam or even much more important , One Hundred Feet Of Chow Line !!
Now I realize that in all likelyhood this particualr event took place well after I had departed to go pilot the ships between New Orleans and Baton Rouge , but did not you younger guys learn anything from those of us whom had gone before you ?? So much to learn and in so little time !! Ma Green would have turned over in her grave !
Smooth Sailing !
Ted Davisson
