| The boat crew of Tango T-18 had a pet Boa Constrictor (about 8' 6" long) and it would roam about the boat freely. We had all taken pictures with this snake. One night while they set up ambush on the Grand Canal they got into a firefight and hit with several rockets and machine gun fire. They were lucky no one on the boat was hurt. The next morning they could not find the snake on the boat. I guess it did not like the noise from the machine guns and rockets because it went AWOL over the side of the boat and was never seen again.
