WOW! Now this a tour that I could take.
I tried to go through a Russian sub by the Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA, but my claustrophobia reared its ugly head...I had to get out. This visual tour of the USS Pampanito is much more my speed.
Where else but the SS can a 3rd class Store Keeper get to drive a boat and do this?
I’ve been to the USS Bowfin, and really got a feel for the close quarters there. The fire control center in the conning tower held 4 people at least during an attack, and is smaller than most modern bathrooms.
Imagine living in a fleet submarine like the Bowfin or Pompanito for 2-3 months at a time. If you didn’t like a shipmate, it could get real hairy towards the end of a cruise.
