Tube Daze: Episode 1-01

Patrick Hrabe of Tube Daze Productions, creator of the very popular "Hey, Shipwreck" video series, has launched his long-promised new project with the release of the first episode of Tube Daze, set on a modern day submarine. Here it is:

I can't wait to see future episodes!

Update 1000 21 Jan: A reader sent in a picture of a "field day hat" he had made:

Hrabe's humor is tops!

Let's make sure all readers, including potential recruits, are not deceived by our insider humor, however.

The only boomer submariners who never had the pleasure to "clean it" never had the experience of enlistment either.

Yes..his humor is Sooooo enjoyable. What I am waiting for in the "Join the Navy" series. I currently work for a recruiting command as a civilian. I passed around his 4 comic strips. Never heard one Career Recruiter laugh at it and say funy. The normally get a scowl on their face and some nasty comment. All the other fleet personnel sentenced to recruiting laugh their a$$e$ off!

Great stuff. They should jus tlet him sit at home and do thois and pay him a Navy paycheck! Keepem coming!!!

Good grief. Just yesterday I was reflecting on scrubbing the decks with a greenie in AMR2LL midwatch 30 years ago. And now this. Can't the Navy afford a Roomba?

"And now this. Can't the Navy afford a Roomba?"

When I first got to NPTU Charleston as staff, I noticed the guys were cleaning the training area with a Dyson vacuum. I was like "where the hell did the Navy get money for a Dyson!?!" (They're one at home.) I was honestly impressed.

A few months later, I saw the guys vacuuming the training area with it. It had gotten pretty beaten up apparently, and one kids couldn't figure out why it wasn't vacumming the floor. After looking at it for a couple seconds, I realized he was missing one of the pieces that connects the floor suction to the canister. We could never find the missing part.

Yes...this kid was a nuke. When I asked him had he used this vacuum and understood about the removable parts, he asked me where the tech manual was for it. At that point, I looked over at the training coordinator and said "it's official...we need a tech manual for everything."

Maybe that's part of the reason the Navy is still scrubbing decks the old fashion way. Let's hope the youngins aren't lost looking for the brush tech manual (though that would be a funny New Underway Buddy training exercise...after blowing the DCA and feeding the shaft seals.)

It always shocked me that foxtails and dust pans didn't have their own MRCs

Ok, Find 'Em, was he a qualified staff nuke, or a student? If he's a student, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if he expected a Tech Manual, since that's the way they are taught.. You don't do a single thing unless there's a procedure for it.

Dysons, huh? When I left NPTU Charleston, we were still using the grey cannister beasts from the fleet to clean the Training Area! The CMC must have come up off some extra money.

In the words of Nathan Explosion:


The pizza comment was great, but the ending was fab. I am reminded of a 766 shirt: "Fight We Might, Drill We Will, Clean We Must."
