I am looking for information concerning my father,

times over the years. He says that he is the guy
that flooded the fuel oil tanks with sea water adding
ballast as they were headed to Honolulu through rough
seas inadvertently drenching Admiral Nimitz with
crude. He was the Water and Oil King on the Helena
in 1955. If any of you fine people have any
information, or related stories, on this, please
