    Hello all,

    New here and hopefully have found the correct place for this post.

    I am interested in contacting anyone currently on the Polar Star.
    In the early 1970's I worked for the company who manufactured the main propulsion gear boxes for both the Polar Star and Polar Sea. A friend of mine who recently retired was cleaning out old photos and came across (3) black and white 8x10 photos of the first gear box we shipped for the Polar Star (1)photo is of gear box in our shop being prepped for shipment and the other (2) are of the box gear box on a railroad car ready for transport.
    Now maybe no one has any interest at all, but i thought maybe someone on the vessel now would like to see what these boxes looked like brand new in 1971/1972.
    If anyone on the Polar Star would have an interest let me know and I'll scan them to my computer and forward them to you. Maybe great photos to hang in the work shop ?

    That sounds like a great piece of history. You should reach out to command on the ships. I'm sure someone would love to have a copy of that.

    Hello To Polar Roller,

    I received your email re the photos of the gear boxes. And yes I still have the photos, and would welcome the opportunity to share them with you and your crew mates.

    If you could advise me how to forward them to you I will do so.

    It appears that I can attach photos to this site, if I do that are you able to download them and print them out ???

    Again not very familiar with this site so any help you can provide would be appreciated.

    Best Regards
    Phil

    I saw the Polar Star FT4 engine and controls manual sets sitting in a trash bin at a gas turbine manufacturer I won't mention and grabbed them and boxed them up, and shipped them out to Seattle to a Coastie guy whose name I won't mention. I heard back they enjoyed it, gave them some fun looking at the older systems and the control algorithms which were changed out for more modern (digital controls) gear with less visibility into the controls algorithms. The binders were ... red ... entirely fitting for the project. Always fun stuff.
