Army guy here who spent a (great) day on the USS Von Steuben before it was decommissioned. My BIL was 3rd in command. Phenomenal experience, but the tight quarters made me almost be happy about being a grunt.

Glad you had a great time!  If you think that boat was cramped, attack boat sailors considered them very roomy, like a luxury sweet in the finest hotel.

I'm sure they do. Being a petit guy myself, 6'3" 240, the sub felt a little cramped. I took the ASVAB for the Navy, Dad was a SeaBee, but opted for a roomy canvass shelter in the rain. You guys deserve credit for being aboard those incredible machines for extended periods.

Woot!

Unterseaboot'er here. SSN 650, 723, 761 and 767.  650 was the best of the bunch...or at least, my favorite.
2X missions to the Arctic, with surfacings and going walkabout and lots of other fun sh!t.

650 was so old that we had M14's in the gun locker and that was in the 90's!

674 a-ganger here.
'77 to 80.
Made a couple of interesting runs up north, but best sea story was when the retards were going to steal the boat

My wife and I attended the Tall Ship festival in Galveston this year.
While there we visited Galveston Naval Museum at Seawolf Park and toured
the USS Stewart (DE-238) and the submarine display,  the USS Cavalla (SS-244).

I would would be thrilled take the little boy to sea - skipper of a man of war, even
on that small would be a trip!

But the sub?
I don't think so.
I don't have the huevos for it.
Respect to those who can.
