Interesting PH sub pix ... as it's framed in the background by what I believe to be the Submarine Base @ Pearl ... as I think you can see the old dive/escape training tower in the background, as well as Admiral Kimmel's HQ on December 7, 1941 ... where he reportedly took a spent bullet through the window whereupon it then bounced off his chest ...

‘It would have been merciful had it killed me,’ Kimmel is said to have murmured to his communications officer, Commander Maurice 'Germany' Curts ...

Pic of the new Russian SSBN, the one without a working missile. Quick question for the experts re subs and hydrodynamics.

notice the slant on the front of the sail. It's leaning forward vs backward. Just a little strange

Nice draft markers going all the way up the sail too. Don't remember ever riding that low, (at least when we cared about taking draft readings). Interesting. I really don't know what to make of that.
