"... the photos are about
4 years old now, but I was there just recently for a boat reunion and it
still looks somewhat the same. I took the photos from a harbor tour boat
that is no longer in business. This is at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard
in Bremerton WA.
The only one I can identify
for sure is the Triton, which is the old one next to the skimmer hull in #11.
There is a Skipjack class boat next to it, and a Permit class behind it
with the sail visible between it and the skimmer.
Some other hull numbers
visible are 661 (with the battle E still showing), 675, and 639. I have
also noticed at least 2 L.A. class boats and several old boomers. The old
Long Beach, CGN 9, is also there minus it's superstructure. My own boat,
the 603, was broken up here in 1995.
Some of the sub parts have
been recycled. The sail from the 637 sits outside the Naval Undersea
Museum in Keyport WA, about 10 miles north of Bremerton. The museum also
features a completely salvaged and rebuilt 594 class control room, right
down to that accursed blue tile we all had to wax. The sail and rudder
from the Woodrow Wilson have been mounted at Detterent Park, outside the
Trident Training Facility at Sub Base Bangor. And, in perhaps the wackiest
example of that whole swords-into-plowshares thing, a couple dozen
sailplanes have been mounted on edge in Warren G. Magnuson Park in Seattle
in a manner meant to resemble a pod of orcas. You'd have to see it."
