Headed to Pearl Harbor
The USS Hughes leaves Manus after three weeks of repairs. The repairs, while extensive, are still considered temporary, and the Hughes will soon be heading to San Francisco to receive the major repairs it needs to be ready for combat again. However, the ship will first stop at Pearl Harbor. Halfway through the 10-day voyage to Pearl Harbor, the temporary repair to the seams of the Hughes split because of the rough seas. The last five days of the voyage will be spent sailing in the wake of the USS Canberra in order to avoid any rough water.
