Images are poor quality.  Almost looks like a U-boat or IJN sub bridge.

Thanks for the information on the Amberjack, I had forgotten her story and it sounds very possible that this is the Amberjack. The pictures provided show that it is a submarine (conning tower and the picture looking down on her) hopefully they will identifiy her
