“Steady As She Goes” by Petty Officer 2nd Class Robert Malin. In 1998, Malin was assigned to record the U.S. Navy’s role in RIRIMPAC 98, the biannual fleet exercise in the Pacific Ocean. The exercise’s goal is to enhance the tactical capabilities of participating units in major aspects of maritime operations at sea. In 1998, the exercise took place in the waters off Hawaii and included participants from six Pacific Nations. The U.S. contributed more than 50 ships, 200 aircraft, and 25,000 military men and women from all services.

Robert Malin, a self-taught artist with no formal training, was born in Tauranga, New Zealand to an American father and British mother. Malin enlisted in the Navy one week after coming to the United States in 1993. His previous assignments include USS Frank Cable (AS-40), USS Detroit (AOE-4), and Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay.
