More Submarines in SoCal
Looks like quite a few submarines are going to be stationed in Southern California again; I wonder what BRAC has to say about this?
"In a not-so-surprising announcement, Disneyland declared that it would soon reopen its classic Submarine Voyage attraction, only this time with characters from Pixar’s Finding Nemo.
"The new Finding Nemo submarine ride would be the only one of its kind at any Disney theme park."
One thing that I hadn't realized is that the original submarines there were named after actual U.S. nuclear subs. Another article that lists all the submarine names is here; the list looks fairly definitive, so I'll list them here. (I'm sure the new subs won't be named after any warships, although they could surprise me and bring Nautilus and Seawolf back).
Original Submarine Voyage Subs: Nautilus, Triton, Sea Wolf, Skate, Skipjack, George Washington, Patrick Henry, and Ethan Allen.
After Name Changes in the 80s: Nautilus, Triton, Sea Wolf, Neptune, Sea Star, Explorer, Seeker, and Argonaut.
To paraphrase the old sea trials chant: "Take 'er down, take 'er deep, make your depth, thirteen feet!"
