There is a good chance that one of those tiny heads in the Bridge is me, I was up as Lookout when they brought the helicopter out for pictures after we commissioned. This would be about 17knots heading out "the race" from Long Island Sound to the Atlantic after leaving the Sub Base in Groton, CT

Diesel boats in the early 60s. USS Darter (SS576), USS Sennet (SS348)& USS Chivo (SS341) All out of Charleston, SC. We operated mostly in the Carribean, but somebody had to do it! ):>) I was an EM2(SS).

Talk about a cool drivetrain. Twin DC-10 turbines and a single screw with reversable pitch. Full ahead to full back in something like 900 feet. Ever see GREEN water come over the fantail?

My dad was in the Air side of the Navy for 23 years.
