it was the sea owl
i spent 4 years on her traveling all over the atlantic ,mediterranian(sp) and the carribian we also searched for debris when the thresher went down and got our photo on the front page of the NYtimes
the bow was the forerunner of the latest sonar
when it first was put on, they were able to detect ships clear across the atlantic,and it took them a while to discover they were hearing that far
i would love to make a few more dives on a sub
i did over 1,000 on this one
