That's really extra cool.

Didn't know there was another Gato class sub so close the Uss Cobia (85 miles across the lake) in Manitowoc WI. They offer overnite experiences on the Cobia, for scout groups and such. Best sleep I ever had ;P

My oldest brother got up close and personal in a Russian submarine stationed in the port on the black sea, he was part of the movie crew for the film K 19 with Harrison Ford!

Very cool. I'm thinking, "run silent" does not apply to this boat.

Probably a lot less noise when the switch off the diesel generator and go electric.
