“I can fix the problem. Just carry a long hose and suck cooling water from a greater depth.”

The gulf averages about 50 meters in depth.

I wonder what happens when the power goes. Do they
run an extension cord to another ship?

>>>"The gulf averages about 50 meters in depth."<<<

http://www.gulfbase.org/facts.php:

Depth "... Its exact maximum depth is controversial, and reports by different authors state maximum depths ranging from 3,750 m to 4,384 m. Mean (average) water depth of the Gulf is ~1,615 m (Turner, 1999) and the basin contains a volume of 2,434,000 cubic kilometers of water (6.43 * 1017 or 643 quadrillion gallons). ..."

You missed it by (approx.) 0.9724459 MILES, which is less than one full mile, but not close enough for a game of horseshoes, or the hand-grenade toss.
