This started while we where on West-Pac 76-77. Our captain and XO who I will leave unnamed where at odds with another ship with the hull number 10. One trusty night our Sr. officers took it upon themselves to teach this ship's captain and crew a lesson on who was in charge and where they ranked.

They rowed out to the bow of the ship and painted out the 1 in the hull number. The captain and crew woke up the next morning with the new ship's number "0".
