The Rough Draft

If you can't go through it. Go around it.

USS Croaker Forward Torpedo Bay

You know a sub is pretty roomy when you take out the stuff that’s in the way.  I had a harder time navigating my way through the sub from forward to aft as I’m a bit wide in the shoulders and I was wearing my Manfrotto camera backpack which makes turning a chore.  The Croaker is pretty cool as well though and was a good way to wind up the tour.  Subs unlike Destroyers and Cruisers are pretty much a straight shot through their innards.  Submariners are also a unique breed among sailors.  I’m not too claustrophobic but I’ll bet that can change in an instant when you’re three hundred feet down and they’re dropping depth charges on you.

I love how the WW2 boats use so much brass in their Launch tube construction.  Compressed air played a major role in the launching of a torpedo as you can see by the amount of tubes and valves.


The aft tubes.

After the tour we walked down the sea wall.  There’s a lovely old Lighthouse at the entrance to the harbor.

The best HDR result from the three sets of image that I took. Being steady is critical to getting results you can use.

An old iron ladder at the end of the seawall. If you’re old and you’re rusty, I’ll take a picture of you.
