Albatross

V

(YMS 80: dp. 320,1. 136', b. 25', dr. 10', s. 14.5 k., cpl. 32, a
1 3", 2 20mm., 2 .50-car. mg.; cl. YMS-1)

The fifth Albatross was laid down as YMS-8O on 27 June 1941 by the Stadium Yacht Basin, Inc. Cleveland, Ohio, launched on 5 May 1942; and commissioned on 15 July 1942, Lt. Charles Bulfinch in command.

The minesweeper sailed on 16 August, via Lake Erie and the St. Lawrence River, for Boston. After being fitted out at the Boston Navy Yard from 2 to 15 September, the ship was as signed to the Mine Warfare School at Yorktown, Va She reported there on 24 October and served as a personnel training ship. YMS-8O detached from this duty on 13 March 1943 and remained in the Norfolk area through the end of June. On 4 July, she reported to Portland, Maine, for antisubmarine warfare training with Task Group 27.1. After one and one-half months at Portland YMS-8O sailed to Newport, R. I., on 25 August and operated in the Narragansett Bav area into the autumn.

On 13 November, YMS-8O switched to her new home port at Key West, Fla. Her duties there varied from retrieving targets to acting as a reference and target vessel. On 17 February 1947 she was named Albatross and redesignated AMS-1.

Albatross spent the remainder of her career based at Key West, operating to various points along the Florida coast and in the Caribbean. Her designation was changed to MSC(O)-1 on 10 February 1955, and she was transferred to the Commander, 6th Naval District for administrative and operational control. Albatross was decommissioned and simultaneously struck from the Navy list on 20 March 1958. She was sold on 19 February 1959 to Dorado, Inc., Wildwood, N.J.


Albatross

Albatrosses are very large seabirds in the family Diomedeidae. They range widely in the Southern Ocean and the North Pacific. They are absent from the North Atlantic, although fossil remains show they once occurred there and occasional vagrants are found. Albatrosses are among the largest of flying birds, and species of the genus Diomedea (great albatrosses) have the longest wingspans of any extant birds, reaching up to 3.7 m (12 ft). Albatrosses are usually regarded as falling into four genera, but disagreement exists over the number of species.

Albatrosses are the most efficient travelers of all vertebrates on the planet. They expend very little energy soaring hundreds of miles over the ocean each day using dynamic soaring and slope soaring. They have a tendon in each shoulder locking their wings fully-extended, so once aloft and soaring across a fair breeze they never need to flap their wings. Like some vultures they hunt by smell, sensitive to the odor of carrion and other biological processes.

They feed on squid, fish, and krill by either scavenging, surface seizing, or diving. Albatrosses are colonial, nesting for the most part on remote oceanic islands, often with several species nesting together. Pair bonds between males and females form over several years, with the use of "ritualised dances", and last for the life of the pair. A breeding season can take over a year from laying to fledging, with a single egg laid in each breeding attempt. A Laysan albatross, named Wisdom, on Midway Island is the oldest-known wild bird in the world she was first banded in 1956 by Chandler Robbins.

Of the 22 species of albatrosses recognised by the IUCN, all are listed as at some level of concern three species are critically endangered, five species are endangered, seven species are near threatened, and seven species are vulnerable. Numbers of albatrosses have declined in the past due to harvesting for feathers. Albatrosses are threatened by introduced species, such as rats and feral cats that attack eggs, chicks, and nesting adults by pollution by a serious decline in fish stocks in many regions largely due to overfishing and by longline fishing. Longline fisheries pose the greatest threat, as feeding birds are attracted to the bait, become hooked on the lines, and drown. Identified stakeholders such as governments, conservation organisations, and people in the fishing industry are all working toward reducing this bycatch.


USS Admirable (AM-136) was the lead ship of her class of minesweeper built for the United States Navy during World War II. In commission from 1943 to 1945, she was transferred to the Soviet Navy in 1945 and served as T-331 until stricken in 1958.

USS Potomac (AG-25), formerly USCGC Electra, was Franklin D. Roosevelt's presidential yacht from 1936 until his death in 1945. On 3 August 1941, she played a decoy role while Roosevelt held a secret conference to develop the Atlantic Charter.

The Literary Origin of the Phrase 'To Have an Albatross Around Your Neck'

The English language is filled with animal-inspired idioms, from horseplay to monkey business. One of the more bizarre examples of this is the phrase to have an albatross around your neck. If you've ever used this expression to describe an unwanted burden, you were quoting poetry—possibly without realizing it.

This is one of the rare idioms whose origins can be traced back to the source. If you studied the Samuel Taylor Coleridge poem “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" in English class, you may already be familiar with the phrase. In the late 18th-century literary work, a sailor recalls shooting a harmless albatross. The seabirds are considered lucky in maritime folklore, so the act triggers misfortune for the whole crew. As penance, the sailor is forced to wear the animal's carcass around his neck. You can read the famous passage below.

"Ah! well a-day! What evil looks
Had I from old and young!
Instead of the cross, the Albatross
About my neck was hung."

Today, the image of an albatross around the neck is used to characterize an unpleasant duty or circumstance that's impossible to avoid. It can refer to something moderately annoying, like an old piece of furniture you can't get rid of, or something as consequential as bad luck at sea.

Next time you call something an albatross around your neck, you can feel a little smarter knowing you're quoting classic literature. Here are other examples of poetry you may use in everyday conversation without knowing it.

Ci furono due sottoclassi, con modifiche di tipo essenzialmente cosmetico, a volte ritenute classi a sé stanti.

YMS-135 Modifica

Questa sottoclasse era identica alla prima con un solo fumaiolo invece che due, e comprendeva YMS 135–445, 480, e 481.

YMS-446 Modifica

Questa sottoclasse era identica ma priva di fumaioli, e comprendeva le YMS 446–479.

BYMS Modifica

Ottanta dragamine YMS vennero ordinate a cantieri statunitensi per essere trasferite sotto la Lend-Lease alla Gran Bretagna come classe BYMS. Altre 53 unità costruite per la US Navy (hull numbers dal 137 al 284) vennero trasferite come BYMS ed altre 17 vennero consegnate in seguito.

History

Much like the Gouf, the Efreet was a high-performance close combat ground mobile suit created by the Zeon Earth Attack Force. However, the Efreet had an incredibly short production run, with only eight units built before its production was halted in favor of newer and more revolutionary designs like the Dom. All eight Efreets were sent to Odessa where they would be tested for further development.

One of the Efreets produced was piloted by Captain Henry Boone, leader of the Zeon's Wolf Gar Team who lead Operation Desert Dragon to overtake the Albatross Transport Base in the Gobi Desert. Another Efreet unit (known as unit no. 5) was piloted by Captain Doug Schneid of Zeon's Marchosias regiment. Doug Schneid's Efreet was painted in his custom purple colors, and equipped with armaments to fit his combat style.


Albatross YMS-80 - History

Well, Ernal, who quit school after the 9th grade, had read “The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner” by Samuel Coleridge Taylor and was particularly taken by the description of the gracefulness of the bird and chose the name for his boat.

Anyone who has seen the Albatross on the water will recognize the wisdom of his name choice. It might be worth noting that, contrary to popular notion, the poem makes it clear that ancient sailors considered the Albatross to be a good luck omen. It is the killing of an Albatross that is thought to be bad luck.

During the 1930’s and immediately after WW II the world of sport fishing was developing and changing dramatically. The sport developed in Florida and off Ocean City, MD and Montauk, NY and a few of the northern fishermen went to Florida in the wintertime. On the way north in the spring several stopped in Hatteras and were more than willing to share information with Capt. Foster.

First blue marlin caught in Hatteras in 1937 by Hugo Rutherford.

Also, several pioneering anglers had noted the close proximity of the Gulf Stream to Hatteras and had made exploratory fishing trips to Hatteras. In 1937 one such angler, Mr. Hugo Rutherford, hired a local captain and they caught the first blue marlin landed off Hatteras, a 570 lbs fish. However, the winds of war were upon us and that angling feat received little notice.

The Albatross Fleet was the pioneering sport fishing operation in North Carolina and had the good fortune of being involved in several milestone events.

475 pound Blue Marlin caught by Captain Ernal Foster

In June of 1951, Capt. Ernal and his 1st mate Gaston (his youngest brother) had a charter from PA that was comprised of a group of older gentlemen who wanted dolphin and amberjacks.

Well, Capt. Ernal had been seeing a lot of blue marlin and had recently purchased a heavier rod and reel that he thought would be strong enough to catch one. So he rigged up a Spanish mackerel and put it out.

And, almost immediately, he hooked his marlin.

In unison the charter declared that they had not come Hatteras to work that hard and told him that if he wanted it that bad then he should wind it in! So he did. They landed the 475 lbs. fish after a 2 hour battle and brought it to the dock.

Aycock Brown was called, his pictures went out to every sports page in the country and, almost overnight, Hatteras became known as the destination for anyone looking to catch a blue marlin in the USA.

Betsy Walker (left) was the first woman to ever catch a blue marlin north of Florida.

That above mentioned catch caught the attention of a couple from Richmond, VA who were ardent big game anglers. So in the summer of 1952 Mr. & Mrs. Ross Walker chartered the Albatross II for a week of blue marlin fishing. During that week Mrs. Betsy Walker caught a blue marlin and, in so doing, became the first woman to ever catch a blue marlin north of Florida. That catch also received widespread publicity and big game fishing and Hatteras became even better known.

By the mid-󈧶s there were ten charter boats operating out of Hatteras and both the ports of Morehead City and Oregon Inlet had established fleets. Fishing was going well and billfish were being brought to the docks daily. The Albatross Fleet was thriving. Capt. Oliver O’Neal ran the Albatross III, Capt. Ernal ran the Albatross II and Capt. Bill Foster was the captain of the Albatross. Business could not have been better.

Then, in August of 1958, a remarkable event occurred in Hatteras. A couple arrived on their honeymoon. They were from “up north” and they shared a love of fishing. Dr. John “Jack” Cleveland and his wife Ellie booked Capt. Bill for a week of marlin fishing. Their pursuit of the biggest fishing prize there is, a blue marlin, paid off.

Dr. Cleveland hooked and battled a blue marlin and, when the fish was brought alongside the boat he made a remarkable request. The request was unheard of. He wanted Capt. Bill to let the marlin go, to give it it’s freedom, to let it live to fight again another day. Captain Bill did as requested and, in so doing, became the first captain to ever let a billfish go on purpose in North Carolina.

At the time the act created negative comments, some cat calls and considerable skepticism. But, it also started a trend, a trend that grew and grew an eventually became the norm. Billfish “catch and release” is now the expected behavior of anglers and, of all its achievements, is probably the one in which the Albatross Fleet takes the most pride.

By the end of the 1950’s the Hatteras charter fishing industry was very thoroughly established. The early captains, with no electronic navigation devices and very limited sport fishing experience had, through trial and error, developed skills and a body of knowledge that they eagerly passed on to the young men who worked as their mates. This knowledge had been hard gained through trial and error.

They were all watermen, and the sons of watermen. Their navigation skills involved dead reckoning, a watch, a compass and a keen awareness of the few landmarks available (the best being Diamond Lightship, anchored in 30 fathoms). Having been on the water all their lives they picked up new ideas quickly but they still had to learn when and where the many species of fish that travel by Hatteras would be available.

A private fishing club, the Hatteras Marlin Club, had been established and anglers from all over the world knew about and fished the waters off Hatteras. It was against this backdrop that, in the summer of 1962, Capt. Bill Foster cemented his position as a great captain.

On the day before the Hatteras Marlin Club was to begin its annual blue marlin tournament Capt. Bill caught a big marlin. Keeping in mind that in those days there were not a lot of fishing tournaments and that each one attracted the attention of the entire sport fishing world. What it meant was that everyone who fished was watching Hatteras.

Captain Ernal Foster with 810 pound new world record in 1962.

Against that backdrop Capt. Bill took out a charter that included an angler named Gary Stukes. The marlin fishing had been a little slow for several days and when they caught a 250 lbs fish there was great excitement on the boat. The baits were redeployed and 10 minutes later there was another strike. Mr. Stukes was in the chair and with the first jump they knew the fish was special.

How special? When the fish was brought to the dock and weighed it tipped the scales at 810 lbs. and that made it a new world record, the largest blue marlin anyone had ever caught! And that was big news, at the right time, in the right place and it gave the Albatross Fleet, Capt. Bill and Hatteras a significant place in angling history.

These pioneering Captains left their mark on the world of sport fishing. Capt. Oliver ran the Albatross III until he retired in his seventies, Capt. Ernal and Capt. Bill were active in the fleet until they passed away in the 󈨞s. They were each instrumental in the development of the charter fishing industry of Hatteras and they left behind a tradition and a legacy that the Fleet carries forward today.
