Once we painted the inside T**tie pink sand. The old man thought it was nice.
a side bar - behaviorists found, some years ago, that painting police drunk tanks hot pink has a very effective calming impact on drunks and drug addicts
The old man must have read that study and applied it to his crew!
Thanks for your service. I have a submarine "jones" and love stories of the dark, deep.
Patrick Robinson writes great submarine thrillers (ala Tom Clancey). A number of them deal with Iranian and Kilo class subs, coincidentally.

(Drink your beer, damnit! There are people in Africa sober!.)
I am not much of a novel reader. I guess I do enough other kind of reading throughout the day that I kill the desire to read further. However, I think I have seen just about every submarine movie made. (May have missed a few, especially foreign ones). I do know a few interesting real life stories. Some of the facts may still be classifed, maybe not. The time I spent riding the boats was one of the best times of my life. I am very thankful that this country gave me the opportunity to spend time on her magnificant war ships. I also got to ship out on an ASW air craft carrier for awhile so I had the chance to see both sides of the hunt and hide game. I call it a game because most of the time we spent practicing as if it was a game in order to be ready for the real thing.
