Sailor but no submariner
« on: February 18, 2015, 10:58:36 AM »
Ahoy all,

New to this forum and sorry to report that the only thing I know about submarines is how to throw hardware at them from surface ASW ships.  ;)

With that out of the way, I do have an interest in any ship, particularly museum ships. To that effect I started my website and facebook page, and like to do some research before I add a ship to my site. Currently in the process of adding USS Ling. Stumbled across some pretty grim outlook for the Ling and hope to find out more here.

Thanks

I wish I knew more about what's going on with the Ling myself.  Didn't sound too good.

Welcome here!

Welcome aboard shipmate,

The Ling was open last year for tourista's for the first time since the storm which shut them down for a year or so, I have yet to see or hear anything regarding them reopening this year.. Lets all hope that they do
