While other teenagers were driving cars... I was driving a multimillion dollar state of the art master of seas.
Loved it so much, I begged the Skipper for reenlistment and to let me do another "hitch" on her rather than go to shore duty.
Being fully aware ware of the dimensions, as I've walked them many times, and was quizzed to pass ships submarine quals, it's to scale. Couldn't get the rudder fin in. She's maximum knots, it's buried in foam.
She had just came out the shipyard and was refitted with sound dampening rubber on all noise making machinery, and a new reactor core. She was the fastest and quietest of her class. The next class was faster, but the Permit was still quieter.
"First to fire" the Mark 48 torpedo and the Subroc. The rest is classified.
Got the idea from Dan.
