Studly’s Big Birthday Adventure, Part 3: The Leftover Photos

I snapped many photos while Studly Doright and I toured the USS ALABAMA and the USS DRUM in Mobile, Alabama, this past weekend. Here are the ones taken while we snaked our way through the DRUM, a World War II era submarine on display at Battleship Memorial Park. 

Studly and I had to go through some drastic physical manipulations to get through all of the sub’s narrow hatches.
Run silent; run deep
Beautiful brass fittings gave the sub an artsy feel.
Doors (aka hatches) approximately 2 feet x 4 feet.
No privacy for the sailors!
Captain’s wheel
The officers’ shower room.
Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead!

I can’t imagine being stuck on this vessel for months on end. Claustrophobia would’ve been the death of me.

Peace, people!

  1. Submarines are so cool. Been on a few. If I had Bill Gates money, I order up a plush one and, for the most part, live submerged. A few people are doing just that.

    Nice tours, you take us all on, Painted Toes.

    And be sure to advise Studly that the first 100 years are the toughest.
