Attached is the another photo of the Taney during the rescue of the SS Angelo Petri in Feb.
1960.   This photo and the one that you have on the web page,( 5 BELLS, page 3) were both taken
by the Navy during the rescue.  I was on the helm during this time.  I believe it is about 100"
from the water line to the yard arm on the mast.  This picture shows a good relationship to the
size of the swells.   I obtained a copy of both

USS TANEY (CG) 1944   I think this is an official photo since the radar is blocked out, the photo on page 4 is similar but with the flag on the stern would indicate at anchor.
