Wow!! She looks like she's in excellent shape compared to the USS Drum and other ship museums I've visited. Thanks for sharing the pictures AU.

Hope all is well with you. I was up your way this past Father's Day.

Great Pics! I live in Chicago and have toured the U-505, but never a US Boat!

The contrast in quarters is very noticeable. Though not a luxury liner, she is compared to the U-505.

Neat. This boat appears to be in good condition. My uneducated eyes couldn't spot any post-1945 gear onboard.

In the late forties, the USN began a series of upgrades to incorporate advanced tech into the submarine fleet, the "GUPPY" programs. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greater_Underwater_Propulsion_Power_Program

Are there any submarine museums based on a sub from this era?

Tour a US Fleet Sub you will be shocked at the size difference, particularly the interior space. I've seen U-505 and the USS Drum in Mobile and the USS Cavalla in Galveston.

Except for the SCPO uniform. The Navy didn't have any enlisted rank higher than CPO until 1958.

A view of the forward torpedo room.





How did they manage to sleep in those beds? Theres barely enough room to breath in there. They propably had special training just for the purpose of getting into bed/out of it.

If you are tired enough, you can sleep about anywhere...

i had a friend who used to sleep on a steel I-beam at his job on occasion (high up enough that if he had rolled over it would have been probably fatal... )

Why did they need rails on their bunks?  Like they have room to turn over and fall off?  No way!  These guys must have been midgets.  I do know one former WWII sub veteran - he was an officer on the Paddle.  He is quite small.  After the war he went to lawschool and was a judge in Rome, GA for many years.  He's now in his 80s and quite a gentleman.

CR... when on the surface a sub can roll quite nastily. Having a rail on the bunk can prevent a crewman from serious injury in a storm...of course, in this case it looks like it's just keeping the mattresses from falling out of the bunk...

Visited that sub about 3 years ago. Live about an hour south in a suburb of Milwaukee... Its a great little museum. (there is a museum plus the sub). I think that sub is there because it was one of the subs made there.
