SS-581 Blueback

Since I was I elementary school this has been one of my favorite local things. OMSI's very own decommissioned submarine.The Blueback is the most modern Navy submarine on public display and it is sitting pretty in the Willamette just a short trip from home. It has been several years since I last toured the sub and I found out recently that they offered a tech tour. Lasting over 5 hours it definitely was thorough. Very enjoyable and for a tech geek like myself very much worth the trip. Some pics:
