This sub has been difficult for me to find photos or information.  It seems to be a pretty well-kept boat too.  Look at how they have their engines displayed.

Yes, they are Fairbanks, Morse, and Co. engines.

I enjoyed visiting the boat in 1991.  It is in very nice condition and the alarms/1MC still work.
