Coast Guardsman jumps aboard narco submarine while underway.
#11
I worked closely with the Coast Guard out of Gitmo Bay Cuba and Mayport FLa. performing drug interdictions (LEO's) late 80's early 90's. Those gentlemen and gentlewomen are unsung HEROS. The greatest Respect and Honor must always be afforded to those wonderful men and women.


In 1992 a young female communications officer helped guide me thru the lowest deck of a cargo ship that had been modified via radio. It didn't match our briefing and some how she obtained (during operations no less) update intel from Brazil via an Interpol Rep. She saved not only myself but, my four friends behind me.

My hat will always be pulled from my head for the Untied States Coast Guard. The Coast Guard is combat oriented. It's not spoken of much. Pray for them for they do good deeds.

Gorilla tape or flex seal tape then

Aircraft, construction grade, bonding adhesive tape. Great stuff. Expensive and not sold to the public. I get mine at the local aircraft maintaince supply at the airport.. They think i'm an aircraft mechanic. Wear overalls or coveralls when shopping. Pay cash. It's a 3M industrial product.

We called it 100 mile an hour tape in the Army.  Chuckle You don’t want to know what all we did with that stuff!

I use two types. The super strength has a red peal layer. It's clear. Taking two pieces of aluminum taped, and after a 24 hr cure, the only way to get them apart is heating the fused block to about 400° F or maybe a little more. It's really tough stuff. I've used it on a lot of camera and electronic hardware.

In the aircraft industry, it's used for aluminum wing and thin structural repair before riveting. With laminated wing aluminum, it will hold pieces in place without any rivets. Pretty amazing stuff

We called it 500 miles an hour tape when I was working on TA-4J's while attached to VC-10 in GITMO. Great stuff that. Long shelve life as well.

3M warns 2 years but, I've had great luck with 5 year old stuff. I keep it sealed and refrigerated.

That looks like some neat stuff! If I ever build a teardrop trailer, I’m using that for the seams!
