Since old boilers in old Merchant Marine vessels and high speed ocean crossings do not mix, we had to take an unintentional detour to Adak, Alaska to fix a blown boiler.

Another view of the gorgeous islands.
Rob on the ship looking quite the scholar.
Tom Hodges looking pretty GQ.
More beautiful scenery from Adak. 
Again, more scenery from the ship.
