I enjoyed every second on the carrier - its a floating "frat house, jail, cruise
ship" all rolled into one.... Now I was young with no family
- I would not have wanted to miss my children
being gone at sea for 8 months at a clip... But back then it was great....
Regarding the film crew, it was fine.... We didn't see much of them and from what I recall
they were only on board for a few days..... but obviously the Capt made a big deal of it and we had to polish the boat everyday and wear clean gear
Worst part is that they don't give Ranger any credit - they changed the name to USS Constellation and USS Enterprise for the film..... Even painted over the numbers on the ship during filming...
