We toured the USS Torsk today. It’s a submarine that was active in the Navy from 1944 to 1968 plus three more years as a trainer for the Naval Reserve. We were with our son Jason who was active duty in the Navy for six years, but at 6’4″ both he and the navy had better sense than to put him aboard a sub. This video gives a pretty good sense of how cramped the quarters on a sub would be – remember, the Torsk usually went to sea with a crew of 65 or so.
She is now part of the Maritime Museum in Baltimore Harbor.
