Abstract:

The USS RHIND DD404 was boarded on 10 August 1946 by an inspecting party which remained on board for about one and one half hours. No major damage was discovered which could be traced to the Test B explosion. There was considerable water found through the superstructure compartments, but this was due to rain and decontamination effort since the test. There was no flooding through the hull, and no evidence of shock damage. Author
