Reports upon the operations, maintenance, and modifications to the reactor plant and ship during the period May 1963 through April 1964 when the NS Savannah was in or near the Port of Galveston, Texas because of a reoccurence of the labor dispute involving the ship's officers. The NS Savannah Technical Staff (STS) was formed when it became necessary to organize a staff to maintain the ship and reactor plant. The STS objective was to: (1) maintain the reactor plant in a safe operating condition; (2) train reactor operators to start up and operate the reactor plant at dockside; (3) establish a training program for training the officers and crew for the new general agent; and (4) engineer and perform the ship and plant modifications consistent with the objectives of the N.S. Savannah program. The report describes the accomplishment of these objectives.
