The Galley and Canteen -by Russ Cameron (from Life Aboard)

Preparing meals at sea was an arduous task with the ship bouncing around like a cork. It took great ingenuity and skill as Bill Hampson and Floyd Fancy would testify. The ship would suddenly lurch hard to port or starboard for a minute or so and Bill and Floyd would run back and forth trying to keep the pots and pans on the range. Many expletives were expressed toward the Bridge and it was suggested that it was a deliberate attempt to scuttle the meal. Now with all the tasty meals being cooked, who would ever conceive such a devilish scheme!
