and bring us back to the surface...just in case any of the
senior officers should read that post on the previous page
and actually give the order to surface.*

...just a minute...Mr Platosmiley - wow !!! you ARE a senior officer!!!

!!Captain Pearson !!

right away sir...

*approaching the ballast tank manifold, alec surveys the 26 count'em
different valves holding back the high pressure ballast gas from inflating the sails to bring us to the surface.*

They aren't labelled...smiley - yikes

*referring to Amy the Ants drawings however, all becomes clear...*

1-4...jib
5-10...Foremast
11-13...Staysails
14-19...Main mast
20-24...Mizzen mast
25...Crossjack
26...Spanker

better start with the skysails first, otherwise we might flip over
then the royals and the topgallants...*opens corresponding valves*

don't want to surface too fast, just enough to bring us up to
crows nest depth, then we can send woodshark up for a quick look around...just to make sure we aren't going to bump into anything.

...thanks shaggy,
(a bit less of the great and mighty if you will, i appreciate that
you are possibly overawed by all this technology, but i'm just
the engineer ).

*opens the valves to inflate the lower topsails and the mainsails
to bring this mighty vessel back to the surface...
also inflates the spanker whilst watching the spirit level so
that we surface without breeching*

*runs up to the bridge to check on everything topsides.*

*falls gracefully down the ladder to the generator room,
lands at the bottom with head inside empty bucket.
staggers around for a bit before smacking into overhead pipework.*

*whilst writhing around on the floor, the bucket becomes lodged,
and alec is able to free himself...*

*as the bucket had previously contained waste oil, alec has now
taken on the appearance of a black and white minstrel...*

*he looks cautiously around*

smiley - yikes
