I approve, but there is one thing I would change, and that would be profile shot of a sub cruising on the surface, like the one below (Which is the Haddock, Dick Fogle's sub)

If for some reason you do decide to change the pic I have one of the Batfish cruising on the surface in a book. But I like the way it is or if you change it cool.

Travis may have a point...the website has a 3/4 profile (the same as on the new tour book).  We had talked about consistency in our advertising.  Even our volunteer shirts have a 3/4 profile sub.  However, if you are limited on space, then I like the image chosen.

I wouldn't go into a lot of effort as I like what you got.

I agree that a sub profile would catch the eye much faster than the current bridge/bow photo.  Most war enthusiasts would spot that in a line-up from a mile away.

good point.  It is too late at this point.  I have been having a real hard time getting a good pic of the sub profile.  I want to see the one that Vaugh took while he was up on the flag pole.   That may be a good eye catcher.

This is a great shot.  With your permission, I will forward this shot onto the Chamber and try to get it in the travel guide.   This pic makes me wish that it was turned arrounds. ......

I was just suggesting we use the profile shot of the Haddock, since it shows a good image of what the fleet boats looked like in WWII.

I just checked with the agency.  It is too late to change it.  We are going to reserve this photo for a later production...
