For the Cubera (SS-347) go to this link and choose "Cubera SS 347" from the dropdown link:

For the Patrick Henry (SSBN 599) go to this link and choose "Patrick Henry SSBN/SSN 599" from the dropdown link:

http://www.submarinesailor.com/boats.asp?bt=ssbn

There are many guys listed for each boat there.  http://www.submarinesailor.com is a great way to find old shipmates.  I don't know if you've registered there or not, but if you haven't just visit:

http://www.submarinesailor.com/crewadd.asp

And fill out that form.  That way other crewmates can find YOU!  :)

USS COD has her bell...

Ours went missing long ago and the USNHC loaned us CUBERA's.

Batfish needs a bell, if it isn't stowed away somewhere.  I don't remember seeing it as a display item in the museum.

Maybe we can get another Navy museum to loan us one, like the torpedoes?
