Hello everyone. I'm Charles, and I'm a veteran of the U.S. Navy. I became a pipe smoker while in the Navy, thanks to one of our chief petty officers introducing me to pipe smoking. Tragically, I lost my pipe (thanks to a rather large blue-fin tuna we caught while fishing off the back of my ship). The dang fish was flopping like mad and knocked my pipe out of my mouth and made it the property of the Pacific Ocean. The loss as since been remedied, with many more additions as well.

There's 1 sea story down, and about 499 more to go lol

Welcome to BOB. Nice story. That's why every piper needs a couple of cobs in the tackle box.

I was actually a Mineman in the mine-sweep navy, but I spent a majority of my time as a deck ape (was the Deck dept. supervisor my last year on-board ship). Nice to meet a fellow sailor on here!!! Smile

Welcome Smile I hope you enjoy your time here on BoB! Sorry to hear about your first pipe but I'm glad it sounds like the loss encouraged a nice health PAD outbreak.

Davy Jones sends his "thanks" for the nice pipe you "sent" him.
He's enjoying a bowl of Seaweed Flake at this very moment. Laughing
