Sub museums in Long Beach?
« on: November 08, 2008, 09:23:08 PM »
I received this question today via email:

"I served aboard the USS Hector (AR-7) from 1969-72, and we were homeported out of  Long Beach .  There was a sub museum (WWII class) tied up near Hector's berth.  I have long forgotten the sub's name.  Any chance you could help me & whether that sub was moved elsewhere after the shipyard was closed?  I can't seem to find any clues on the web.  Thanks.

Dennis Stahl"

Any ideas for Dennis?

probably the last fleet sub in CA... Sawfish? Used to film episodes of "SILENT SERVICE" but it was in Long Beach...
