The Effects of Prolonged Submergence

This is what a submarine's hull looks like after being submerged for 43 days straight.  Razorback is in Yokosuka, Japan in November, 1968.

USS Salmon (SS-573) is alongside.

The deck logs from this period are available on the AIMM website, if you want to see first hand what was going on.

This photograph is courtesy of William Zwicker, who was a Machinist's Mate aboard Razorback in the late 1960s.  He loaned his personal scrapbook to the museum so that we could scan the photographs.

The entire scrapbook is also on our website.
