Not saying he's old, but I remember when I crewed on the Santa Maria with Columbus, Steve was the navigator.

FYI, audible detonation is the least destructive. It's a lower frequency which the ear can detect. It's the high frequency detonation the ear cannot hear that is the most damaging. I suggest you install a simple knock detection device as well. I have these if you need.
Damn,...that really WAS a rough trip, too. Hardtack & salt pork tastes pretty bad after a few weeks eh?

Excellent point on sub-audible detonation. I tell my clients that if they rely on their ears as the defacto "knock-sensors", they are going to buy a lot of expensive parts.
