Pampanito Anchoring Project

Berthed at Pier 45 in San Francisco Bay near the Golden Gate bridge, the Pompanito is one of the must-see fleetboats on display in the US. Apparently, it can experience heavy swells due to its location and has sustained damage in the past. Recently, the museum upgraded her anchoring system thanks to the generous donations of interested companies. Take a look at this fascinating project here: http://maritime.org/moorings2010/index.htm.



About Me

The first 'grown up' book Paul Crozier ever read was "War Fish" by George Grider. Since then he has spent most of his life researching the U.S. Submarine Force in WWII and USS Wahoo (SS-238) in particular.


This blog is dedicated to all who have served in the U.S. Submarine Force. Thank you for your service and sacrifice.
