Evenin’, All! Thanks for the trip/tour, Ms. Lauren!
The Bowfin put our submarine war into stark perspective. She’s such a small boat compared to the rest of the vessels that made up the Pacific Fleet during WWII. There is a free-standing conning tower attack center on the grounds of the museum with a working periscope and other accoutrements of the typical submarine of the time. I can’t see how they managed to work in those conditions; and they certainly weren’t fairly represented in most movies of the time.
