Had not looked at these shots in a long time & thought I would share a couple of them. This sub was located at what was the Saratoga Foundation Museum in Providence, RI. The Sub sank during a storm in 2007 & had to be sold for scrap. It was a diesel/battery powered missile sub that was launched in 1965. It was very complete, not stripped down at all.

It's interesting to see how rough the metalwork is. Maybe it's not surprising that it sunk in a rain storm? ;)

Frank, when I first saw the sub I also thought it was pretty poorly made based on the appearance, but I found out that the metalwork looks rough due to a two-inch layer of sound deadening acoustic rubber tiles. This made it harder for us to detect it when submerged.

It carried 4 nuclear tipped missiles but wasn't very well designed - they had to surface to fire them. The big round red lid in the 2nd photo is where a missile was stored, it raised up and was fired from the deck. There were 2 of these tubes at each end of the sub.

Thanks for the comments. These are older jpg's and I ran them through LR4 and was able to bring them up quite a bit, made me glad that I looked at them again with the newer software.
