The second Agile (MSO - 21) was laid down on 22 February 1954 at Stamford, Conn., by the Luders Marine Construction Co. as AM-421; redesignated MSO-421 on 7 February 1955 launched on 19 November 1955; sponsored by Mrs. Alice Donohue and commissioned at the New York Naval Shipyard on 21 June 1956, Lt. Herbert D. Mills, Jr., in command.

The non-magnetic ocean minesweeper completed fitting out at New York and then sailed on 13 July for her home port Charleston, S.C. She remained there for about two weeks before getting underway on 31 July for her shakedown training. Agile operated out of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, between 8 August and 6 September and returned to Charleston on the 10th of the latter month. Type training and post-shakedown availability at the Charleston Naval Shipyard followed. The beginning of 1957 found her still at Charleston, but preparing to embark upon her first deployment to the Mediterranean Sea.

Agile began her first Atlantic crossing on 12 February 1957 transited the Strait of Gibraltar on the 26th, and cruised with the 6th Fleet for three months. During that time, the ship participated in two amphibious exercises and visited several Mediterranean ports. Among her ports of call were Patras and Athens on the Greek mainland; the Greek islands of Samos, Rhodes, and Crete; and Cannes, France. The crisis in Jordan in April kept her in the eastern portion of the Mediterranean for most of her first deployment. After turnover at Rhodes, Agile began the long voyage home on 25 May; and she reentered Charleston with her division mates on 16 June.

Post-deployment leave and upkeep occupied the ensuing five weeks. On 26 July, the minesweeper got underway for Little Creek, Va., to participate in harbor defense and minesweeping exercises. However, damage to her propeller forced her into repairs at the Newport News Shipbuilding & Dry Dock Co. and precluded her participation in the exercises. The repairs ended on 25 September, and the warship departed Newport News that same day. Returning to Charleston five days later, she spent the bulk of October conducting acoustic trials out of her home port.

On 26 October, the minesweeper stood out of Charleston on her way to Panama City, Fla., where she reported on the 31st for duty with the Mine Defense Laboratory. She assisted the laboratory in the conduct of special mine defense tests for five weeks, completed that service on 5 December 1957, and headed back to Charleston. December brought the usual year's-end holiday leave period. The New Year, 1958, began with a two-week availability alongside a tender. February saw Agile pass her final acceptance trials and an operational readiness inspection. On 17 February, the minesweeper entered the Charleston Naval Shipyard for regular overhaul. She completed repairs by June and began duty with the shipyard testing propeller blades. During July and August, the warship conducted refresher and type training. September brought preparations for overseas movement.

Agile put to sea on 29 September 1958, bound for her second tour of duty with the 6th Fleet. Port calls and exercises—notably an amphibious landing exercise carried out on the southern coast of Sardinia—highlighted that deployment in the Mediterranean. She passed through the Strait of Gibraltar on 26 January 1959 and began the return voyage to the United States. En route home, the warship made a brief stop at Bermuda before reentering Charleston on 11 February. Between the time of her return and the beginning of summer, the warship carried out tests and conducted minesweeping operations out of Charleston. By the beginning of the second week in August, she was working with the Mine Warfare School as a training platform. That service lasted until she began her holiday leave period in December 1959.

The minesweeper entered the Charleston Naval Shipyard on 29 January 1960 and began a regular overhaul. She completed overhaul on 5 April and, the following month, conducted postoverhaul refresher traming and minesweeping exercises. On 28 June, Agile joined her division mates in deploying to the West Indies. After a round of port visits and exercises, she returned to Charleston on 13 September. Later that month, the minesweeper moved north to Nova Scotia where she participated in Operation "Sweepclear V" a NATO minesweeping exercise. Atlantic coast operations continued into 1961 when she began preparations for her third deployment to the Mediterranean.

Agile departed Charleston on 10 April 1961 in company with the other ships of her division. They arrived at Rota, Spain, on 25 April and took on fuel before entering the Mediterranean. For the next five months, Agile plied the waters of the "middle sea" showing the flag and honing her combat skills. She participated in two 6th Fleet amphibious exercises as well as the NATO Exercise "Checkmate." She and her division mates were relieved at Pollensa Bay, Majorca, on 28 September and began the long voyage home. The return passage ended at Charleston on 14 October.

Following post-deployment standdown, the minesweeper entered the Charleston Naval Shipyard in mid-November for regular overhaul. She left the shipyard in January 1962 and, after refresher training, resumed operations out of Charleston with the Atlantic Fleet Mine Force. Until the beginning of May, Agile conducted independent ship's exercises type training, and training missions for the Mine Warfare School. On 2 May, she departed Charleston, bound for Panama City, Fla. For a little more than a month, the warship performed service in support of experiments and tests conducted by the Naval Mine Defense Laboratory. She returned to Charleston on 8 June, began preparations for a deployment to the West Indies, and embarked upon that assignment on 20 July. The minesweeper made port visits participated in an amphibious exercise at Vieques Island, and Joined other American ships off Haiti for a show of force during another of that country's frequent periods of internal disorder.

Agile returned to (Iharleston on 9 November, underwent two weeks of repairs alongside a tender, and then finished out the year with post-deployment standdown followed by holiday leave and upkeep. On 8 January 1963, she put to sea for a fleet service mine test which ended on the 25th. At that point, the ship resumed normal operations out of Charleston, providing services to the Mine Warfare School as well as conducting the usual independent ship's exercises and type training. Between 4 and 25 May, she participated in the NATO Exercise "Sweepclear VIII" m the vicinity ot Mayport, Fla. Six weeks of local operations out of Charleston followed. On 5 July, the minesweeper departed her home port once again, bound for Little Creek, Va., where she provided services to the Operational Test and Evaluation Force. She returned to Charleston on 25 July and, after a twoweek tender availability, resumed local operations. On 29 October, the vessel entered the yard at the Charleston Drydock & Shipbuilding Co. for a two-month overhaul.

The warship completed the repair period on 3 January 1964. Local operations and refresher training filled her time until the last week in March. Beginning on 22 March, she spent three weeks as a school ship for the Mine Warfare School. Following that duty, the ship once more began preparations to deploy to the Mediterranean. She departed Charleston on 15 May and reported in at Malaga, Spain, on 3 June. In addition to the usual exercises and port visits, Agile participated in a cruise to northern Europe. She left the Mediterranean on 17 July and visited ports in England, Germany, Denmark, Belgium, and France. The minesweeper retransited the Strait of Gibraltar on 17 September and resumed duty with the 6th Fleet. Relieved of duty at Huelva, Spain, he headed back to the United States on 29 October. Agile arrived back in Charleston on 17 November and began a post-deployment tender availability that lasted a month. The remainder of the year brought holiday leave and upkeep.

The 1964 Mediterranean cruise proved to be the last of her career. During the remainder of her active service, some seven years and six months, Agile served in waters near North America. She deployed to the West Indies and to the Gulf of Mexico several times but, otherwise, conducted local operations out of Charleston. At various times, the minesweeper served as a school ship for the Mine Warfare School and as a test platform for both the Mine Defense Laboratory at Panama City, Pla., and the Naval Ordnance Facility at Fort Lauderdale, Fla. In between those special assignments, the warship engaged in independent ship's exercises and type training. Those activities eame to an end, however, on 28 July 1972 when Agile was placed out of commission at Charleston. Later that year, she was moved to a permanent berthing area with the Norfolk Group, Atlantic Reserve Fleet. There she remained for more than seven years. Her name was struck from the Navy list in September 1977, and she was sold to the Union Minerals & Alloys Corp. in February 1980 for scrapping.

Agile-class minesweeper

Agile -class minesweepers of the class built in the U.S. ocean-going minesweepers. 58 ships were built for the Navy of the United States, 35 ships were built for the Navy of the NATO in Belgium, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway and Portugal. After 13 vehicles were transferred to Belgium, Spain, Taiwan, the Philippines and Uruguay.
There is some confusion about how to call this class. Class is often described as an aggressive class like USS aggressive MSO-422 was the first ship should be commissioned. Sometimes four ships a dash of class, subclass, although all ships have the same design.

1. Design. (Дизайн)
As a result of experience during the Korean war, the US Navy conducted a large-scale construction of a new series of minesweepers. Unlike the steel hull minesweepers built before the live class minesweepers were built mostly of wood with bronze and steel fittings and stainless engines to minimize their magnetic signature. The ships were equipped with UQS-1 min localization and Sonar was capable of radical moored, bottom contact, magnetic and acoustic mines.

2. Modernization. (Модернизация)
Although it was planned to modernize the entire U.S. Navy ship of this class was modernized beginning in fiscal 1968, only 19 ships. The upgrade costs between $ 700.000 and $ 1.500.000 $ for the ship and must allow them to work for another ten years. The ships received new diesel engines have aluminum block Waukesha, and the superstructure was extended aft. In the UQS-1 sonar was replaced by SQQ-14. Two PAP-104 cable-trips were added to the underwater instruments. In addition, there were two 40 HP Zodiacs is carried out to anchor the new sonar reflectors. Was also added a team of specialists in underwater mine clearance. Additional space on the focsle was necessary for the installation of the SQQ-14 cable so Bofors 40mm bow gun was replaced with a mountain on two 20 mm cannons MK 68.
As of 2015, four of the ship was transferred to Taiwan is still in service.

The DSDM Agile Project Framework, which is the basis for the AgilePM program, is one of the first-generation Agile frameworks, from the same era as XP, Crystal, and Scrum. People involved in creating the DSDM Agile Project Framework were also among those who created the Agile Manifesto. As a result, the DSDM&rsquos perspective has been reflected in the manifesto, and especially the principles behind the Agile Manifesto.

A significant part of this wiki is about the DSDM Agile Project Framework.

This is (and will be) a work in progress: More details will be added in the future, depending on the feedback.

1990 26 foot Nay Whale Boat (8' 3" beam)

Due to the death of my Father-in-law we are selling his Navy Whale Boat project he was working on. The boat comes with an amazing Float-On Trailer and an extra Westerbeke 34407 Transmission.

This boat was originally bought at Auction from the Navy in San Diego, California and shipped to Iowa. He had planned on refitting the boat completely and taking a long cruise aboard it down the Mississippi after he retired.

The boat has an inboard Westerbeke Diesel engine. I do not know the state of it but just from looking at it from the outside I would think it would be able to rebuild the engine but I can not say for certain as I haven't tried to hand crank it over. So we are pricing the boat accordingly since it will need to be repowered during the refit. You can buy rebuilt Westerbeke Diesel engines for a fair price and simply drop it in (I recently did this on my 1965 Alberg 30 Sailboat).

The hull seems to be in incredible shape and this is a very simple boat so the refit would be pretty straight forward then you could add on to your hearts desire. There are number of websites and forums for Navy Whale boats with tips and suggestions on dialing this boat in.

The boat comes with an incredible Float-On Trailer. It is in perfect condition and has the hydraulic brake system installed and all of the hook ups to plug into the back of your truck and go. I recently towed this boat and trailer with the family's Ford f350 Diesel truck and it towed like a dream. Below are the stats of the boat and the trailer and photos.

I am helping my mother-in-law sell this boat so I can answer any questions you have and then put you in touch with her to arrange the viewing of the boat.

Local Deliver might be possible within a reasonable distance (30 miles or less) and deliver further (to the great lakes area) could be worked out at a delivery cost to the buyer.

I've always considered the V8, V12 & V16 non-magnetic marine diesels Packard built for the Navy for mine-sweeper use as the least-known Packard marine engines. I'm told some of these were in service as late as the first Persian Gulf war. I believe (not positive) that these pictures snitched from eBay are for cylinder sleeves and heads for one of these engines. Excellent source of information on these engines is in Robert Neal's "Master Motor Builders".

According to Robert J. Neal’s wonderful “Master Motor Builders, as late as 1994 the U.S. Navy still had 4 minesweepers in service with their original Packard V-12 marine diesels (1D-1700) and 4 others, also still with Packard power, had been sold off to the Spanish Navy. Apparently all those with the Packard V-16 marine diesels ((1D-2270) had been retired or sold off. These engines and the companion 1D-850 diesel electric generator were made almost entirely of stainless steel, aluminum and bronze to maintain the non-magnetic requirements for minesweeping. Can anyone update us on whether any of these vessels are still in the U.S. Navy, active or in standby, with their original Packard engines.

We have a contributor who has been very deeply involved in restoration of Packard marine engines and has promised to contribute some interesting information, so if this is a topic that interests you, stay tuned and check in frequently. And please chime in with you own contributions or questions - this topic is a very interesting segment of Packard's history.
