Mensagem: 

On December 12, 1974 inspected ship's starboard tanks blah-blah-blah

 

What I quite don´t understood was the blah, blah, blah part...he he.

 Kidding aside; my first thinking is:

 

 

Inspected ship's starboard tanks =  (they meant > ) Starboard tanks of the ship inspected (or of the ships inspected)

 

 

Inspected would be a situation, not a verb (He/she  inspected ship´s starboard tanks and blah, blah, blah, yada, yada...

 

 

But, without have seen the (even the original) context, the piece of text itself for instance, it´s hard to say.

Then, I only played a guess-game.

Other possibility, is that one made a typo in the hasty sending.
