Riding the High Line

Posted by H5O 1.0 FOREVER on December 20, 2016 at 11:55 AM

The military and its loyal veterans have many websites devoted to life in the various branches. The site FoxtrotAlpha has a page about riding the high line between two large ships. The high line usually is used strictly to transfer goods and materiel during replenishment-at-sea operations. It is a rough ride and can be very dangerous. Even so, in a pinch, personnel can be transferred by this method.

Best of all, this page includes footage of Jack riding the high line between the USS Knox (FF-1052) and the USS Cochrane (DDG-21) in “Murder – Eyes Only” (Season 8). You can really see that Jack grew up on the high seas. He makes his way on those ships with incredible ease.

Here’s a direct link to footage of Jack riding the high line:

Here’s a video showing refueling at sea, from the USNS Guadalupe (T-AO-200) to the USS Momsen (DDG-92). It gives complete coverage of how the process is begun, as well as implemented.

Thank you for those links, H50. It's good to see that the navy in a way pays a triibute to Jack by using the scenes from "Murder-Eyes Only". Like you said, these show, again, that Jack felt at ease with being on or moving around a ship. The sea was not really calm in that scene, but I doubt that a stunt man was doing this transfer instead of Jack.
