An Update On PCU Hawaii
PCU Hawaii (SSN 776) is going to be commissioned in Groton on May 5th; this has some people in Hawaii, where she's eventually going to be based, wondering why she won't get out there until 2009. All of us submariners know that the answer is "PSA" (among other things), but this article makes for some interesting reading as various people try to explain what will happen between May and the boat's eventual interfleet transfer.
One of the better tidbits I got out of the article was the URL for the Navy League's USS Hawaii website. You can also see some USS Hawaii art on the CSP boat page, and some pictures (including a close-up of the obnoxious broom) here on the CSP website.
