The Top Side Log Bulletin Board is closed to the public. Only Caiman Shipmates, family members and friends can join. The way we control that is by the registration process. After you register, either Smitty or Hawkeye will review the registration request and either approve it or we may contact you to find out who you are if we don't already know. Once we approve your registration you will receive an email to let you know. You can only post to the Top Side Log if you are registered.
