Comments: I just bought a Sub Base sweatshirt from you guys. Took it out and couldn't believe the smell - darn - I was right back in the after battery of the Ronquil SS396 that I rode in the late 60s. Speaking of "Diesel Boats Forever!' How'd you get the diesel smell! Anyway, a great sweat shirt. (I'm going to order 2 more) Thanks for remembering New London. Have a great holiday.

Comments: I have always had a fascination with submarines and finally decided to see what, if anything, was available on the web. I can see weekends traveling to Baltimore, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Groton, CT. I had no idea museums such as your were offered for public consumption.

Comments: My wife, children and I visited the USS Torsk today in Baltimore and we really enjoyed it...really interesting. Its so important for my children to know this history. Well done--both the actual submarine and the web site.
My son and I are both Amateur Radio operators and we'll be listening in Illinois for HF from the Torsk. Maybe next year on the annual ARRL Field Day?
Thanks again! CF

Comments: My Father was J.A. Minor M2c. He received a memorandum from The Engineering and Repair Officer via Liutenant Shields. It reads: "It has come to my attention that from both Commander Johnson and Lieutenant Shields that you have done an unusually difficult and unpleasant job in the U.S.S. Torsk in connecton with work that you performed in the void space in the After Battery. I realize from personal observations of a similar job in the past that it is a tough proposition. Many thanks for a job well done."
It is signed by E.S. Carmick
I would love to hear back from someone regarding this.

Comments: I have really enjoyed this site. I was wondering if there was anymore information on my grandfather who served on this sub from 44-45 his name was Seals M Miller his was a MoMM 2nd class. I would have loved to show him this site but sadly he passed away in 1996

Comments: Gents: I rode a Tench Class Boat in the late 60's, the Sea Leopard SS-483. It is always a thrill to see the Torsk in Baltimore Harbor. Great Job to all the volunteers aboard. God Bless.
