Bremerton, Washington Strip Ship
August, 27-28, 2001
USS Sailfish SS-572
Naval Inactive Ship Maintenance Facility, Bremerton, Washington. Current home of USS Sailfish SS-572. She can be seen here nestled under the port bow of USS Midway CV-41, where she has rested for the past few years.
During the strip ship, access to Sailfish was by boat, from the dock at the left of the image. No access was available through the carrier.
The view from Sailfish's bridge over her bow. As Dave Thames said "you looked up, and all you could see was Carrier!!"
A view aft over the top of the sail. The periscopes have been removed.
