English: The US Navy attack submarine USS Annapolis (SSN 760) rests in the Arctic Ocean after surfacing through three feet of ice during Ice Exercise 2009 on March 21, 2009. The two-week training exercise, which is used to test submarine operability and war-fighting capability in Arctic conditions, also involved the USS Helena (SSN 725), the University of Washington and personnel from the Navy Arctic Submarine Laboratory.

Answer:  GET UNDERWAY

(Because, I can’t do a joke about anchors aweigh if they don’t!  Not the best pun, but it will do.  They do mainly operate under water.  None of the clue words are new today, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  None of them stumped me today.  The answer letter layout was probably the best jumble of the day.  The cartoon was fun.  It’s been a while since we’ve had one with the classic sinking sailboat!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Tough day. ROUND and JUNGLE I didn’t get. I thought UNDER was involved somewhere…. Liked the cartoon, is that a buoy or a sinking sailboat in the upper left corner?

    That’s the classic sinking sailboat, Damid! Where you been, bro? It’s pretty much a staple for any Jumble that involves the water. (They have given us buoys in the past though, too!) — YUR 🙂

    The words were instant, and I knew UNDER must be part of the final answer. Typing in UNDER for the second word, I could immediately see that that word was UNDERWAY, and then GET followed easily.
