At random: Probably the most expensive ballast ever carried by a ship was two tons of gold and eighteen tons of silver coins carried by the U.S. submarine TROUT while on a trip from Corregidor to Pearl Harbor early in World War II. TROUT had removed her moveable ballast to allow for a larger cargo of ammunition to be transported for the defenders on the embattled island. Lcdr. Fenno, TROUT's CO, planned on replacing the ballast with sand bags, but found none were available. The gold and silver from the Bank of the Philippines was substituted as ballast, which also solved the problem of removing the treasure to a safe place prior to invasion by the enemy.

Maybe fifteen years ago I was traveling on the east coast with a business associate who grew up around Provedence, RI.  He took me to a hot dog place that was fantastic.  It was called Ney York Systems and they had restaurants/stands  all around RI and areas north.

Anybody out there familar with them as I've got an incredible hunger for maybe a half dozen of those great dogs

Google  "New York System" and you will get numerous hits on locations of their hot dog stands,places to order thier sauce,and recipes for even better (supposedly) sauce than they have.

Haven't had the hot dogs, but I've got an offer to try the pizza (I don't think I can refuse)...
