This is my 2500th post on this blog. In celebration, here's a cool picture of USS Chicago (SSN 721) at PD:

Expect light posting this week -- we've got family coming into town and our youngest is graduating from High School (yes, the two events are related). Please feel free to discuss amongst yourselves about pretty much anything.

Is it surfacing? Why the light colored top on the deck? Looks like bubbles.

I deny your Hooyah. Just back a line of cement trucks up to the DD basin and start filling that thing in.

I thought submarines were non-detectable at PD.

This was at the end of the exercise.
We did two weeks at PD doing this and they never found us. It was amazing.

could not agree more....

Raise your hand if you dropped a sub off the blocks in drydock.....

And to think that they tried to BRAC the best shipyard out there... PNSY!
