    Hi Brian

    Yes it is a good one, great how they have put the site together.

    I was wondering where did all the men fit. As you say its so small in there.

    Thanks for the link, Spike,
    When I was young, I worked in the shipbuilding industry for several years, it was on submarines.

    Pamanito and Jeremiah O`Brien astern, on the right is Alcatrraz Island now a museum
    Hi,
    I have been onboard the `USS PAMPANITO`, She is on the same wharf as the `JEREMIAH O`BRIEN` the SAM boat Pier 43 I think. I go on them every time I go to Frisco.
    Fascinating place with all the preserved ships, such as the `BALCLUTHA` a barque from Glasgow, and the Humber ferry, the `Thingy Castle`, a side wheeler sailed all the way there alone, an epic voyage. and many other vessels.
    Well worth a visit, get a cheap flight to Frisco and it beats the hell out of Benidorm.
    There is another one in Darling Harbour, Sydney, one of the O Class subs.

    We preserve nothing in the UK the way the Americans do.

    When I was a kid (1944 vintage) my parents often commented about a sub being lost in Liverpool Bay. It was HMS Thetis. From what they told me there were no survivors.
