The Albacore is really unique!
« on: August 15, 2008, 10:24:19 AM »
The Albacore is special in the fact it's a one-of-a-kind submarine.  She's literally in a class of her own.  She has a unique look and those twin screws that look wicked.  Quite a unique berth too.

You should have seen her in the water sliding past an old diesel boat - more like flying past us!

If you saw my nomination for the Submarine Hall of Fame, I didn't mention that our praise for ALBACORE included the fact that she has the LARGEST public restroom in all of HNSA!  The room is about 18 x 22 feet and has ONE toilet!  But if you want to go potty with 30 of your friends, this is the place!  And I like Jim  :coolsmiley:... he's nice!

A new commode is being installed in the head in the Albacore visitors center this winter.  It is on hold until the plumbers run the air to the septic tank so it can be blown properly.  Jim is against that because he knows who will have to clean up after venting mishaps.

Blowing sanitary on a boat suck in the mud?
