There is also an emergency fresh water tank in FTR and a hot water heater (tank) in Forward Battery.

The hot water tank for officer country on the Batfish is located in a pantry across from the steward's food prep room.  It looks to be about 30 gallons.  The water didn't have far to go to get to the shower on the other side of the bulkhead.

I had forgotten about that emergency fresh water tank fwd and the water heater, and I even saw it last weekend when I was on the boat and honestly I think that the ALCOHOL tank is more usefull then the Officers shower even though it is in the Fwd Torpedo Room. ;)

Lance, never know where these replies end up, so am replying to A little off topic, but I believe if we could create a candle or an air freshener that smelled like the inside of a diesel submarine, we could make millions!    That reminded me of one of Fibber McGee's radio programs, the show of 05-18-48; Fibber sets out to make a cologne that captures the essence of baseball. He wants it to include the fragrances of fresh mown grass, baseball glove leather, and cigar smoke, among other things. It was pretty funny.
