Hi All,

The trim/balance of the boat was important enough that the Chief Engineer was responsible for it. Everything that was expendable/consumable (ammunition/torpedoes, food, water, fuel etc.) was routinely monitored, logged and reported to him so he could make any necessary adjustments. One of the control room petty officers routinely monitored the salinity of the water, especially when the boat was close to land where fresh water (river & streams etc.) emptied into the ocean, and logged & reported it to him too.

Regards,

Ken Dunn
