Thanx, David. Must have been a pretty hard job just getting the pieces inland like that.
Of course. How about a range, then, deepest draw for any class, minimum draw for any class?
Lot of variables. For a sub getting ready for being put out of service and totally empty, it would ride pretty high when surfaced. Any class. Fully loaded, a lot lower. I believe the sub in this case is an Ohio class and, fully loaded, draws 35.5 feet. Or a "draft" of 35.5 feet. In other words you need 35.5 feet of water to float one.
Several years ago, we were helping some friends bring their new sailboat from St.Augustine, FL, to Charleston, SC. The intercoastal doglegs on the St. Mary's. We had two small subs slide by us, about 1/4 submerged.
Had the same thing happen in the early 90s in Charleston harbor as they headed up the Cooper River to the Navy base.
There's also a 'planted' sub at the entrance to Patriot's Point in Mt. Pleasant /CHS harbor. See Google Earth -Patroits Point, just across from the Parking lot entrance.
I have to admit that the sub discussions are off topic but very interesting....really.
I got an e-mail notice a short time ago...and sure enough...there is a new blog post at that same site. Maybe this guy/gal will improve upon their spelling. The new topic is actually one I can relate to...as I get a ton of e-mail every day. :eek2:
Back to the submarine races...
Very cool...did you get any pictures you can post?
Are you kidding??!! That was in the days of film / slides - which I'm sure I have some squirrelled away somewhere! Now we have pictures of the cat sneezing! (meaning taking meaningless pictures of everything!)
We overnighted at the marina just off the waterway on the highway leading to St. Simon - probably near your 'Golden Isles'.
