I was aboard the USCGC EASTWIND W279 while undergoing repairs for a ship fire. We were tied up behind the ALBACORE at the Portsmouth yard for a couple of months, and could not find out anything about the sub in front of us. While sitting in a barber shop I had the oppertunity to read the article in Collier’s Magazine. I would have been proud to have been a crew member of that sub. I will be visiting the Albacore Park.

I have his ash tray made of pewter that has the subs and his name on it...only other ones I've seen are in the museum...Dad passed 5 years ago...I miss him greatly...I only have one navy photo of him...I would like to find someone that knew him or has photos?? His name is Elmer J Winters, jr

Great photos, I was on Nautilus (SSN571) in the yards at Portsmouth in 1967-68 and remember her fondly. Great boat, great crew even if they were diesel boat sailors.
Great web site.
