HOW CLOSE WE CAME TO BLOWING UP PORT JEFFERSON:
Here is a sea story not for the faint of heart.
About 20 years ago I was an Engineer on a 160’ sea going tug.   We were pushing a 400ft barge full of gasoline around New York Harbor and through Long Island Sound.
As we are pulling into Port Jefferson Harbor to off load 350,000 barrels of gasoline, our tanker man finds out that a valve has cracked and has leaked about 30,000 gallons into the Aft Hold. This is where the wiring and the batteries are for the lights. The fumes were so bad that our boots were melting and sticking to the steps as we walked in and out of there. We were able to get two air pumps working and pumped the fuel back to where it belonged, that alone took 2 days.
We were still faced with the problem of getting the fumes out of an air tight area the size of a basketball court. The main office wasn’t sending us the proper equipment to do the job because they did not want anyone finding out.
So the problem was left to me. The barge had 4 diesel engines that drove pumps to off load the fuel. These engines had no electric wiring at all, even the starter was a compressed air starter and a hand pump was used to start them. So there was little or no chance to sparking an explosion. I modified one of the diesels engine air intakes to get half of the air through a 4 inch hose about 120 feet long. And started the engine. We stuck the hose into the aft hold until it revved up from the fumes of the gasoline to about twice the idle speed. The engine would knock and run terribly.  We dropped the hose about 4 inch every hour until it was to the bottom of the bilge.  That took another day and a half to accomplish. After that we started the rest of the engines and pumped the rest of the fuel to land.
