Dear Mr. Sharp,
Thank you for posting your request to History Hub!
We searched the Logbooks of U.S. Navy Ships and Stations, 1941 - 1983 and located deck logs of the USS Tidewater (AD-31) for October 1962 and November 1962. They indicate that the Tidewater was moored in Norfolk, VA until October 30th when it sailed to Hampton Roads, VA. On October 31st, it moved out to sea and returned to Norfolk on November 2nd. For access and/or copies of these logs, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
