USS Torsk SS-423

1986 Dry Docking

by Chuck Weaver EM2(SS)



Both Torsk and the Lightship Chesapeake were drydocked at the same time in 1986, at the Bethlehem Steel Sparrows Point Shipyard in Baltimore, MD. The following photos were taken primarily by Chuck Weaver EM2(SS), a former Torsk crewmember who was invited to ride the boat to the shipyard and visited her while she was out of the water.
