Comments: I served aboard HOIST from '79 to 81 as Executive Officer. I made 2 Med crusies and 2 trips to the carib. The sailors on HOIST were some of the best I have served with. They were a hard working group in spite of any adversity that arose; of course this was standard of the men in the Salvage Navy.
