Things I learned on a submarine...

1) Fresh meat doesn't refer to your dinner
2) Being blue isn't about being sad
3) The sound of turnbines can be restful
4) Hotracking isn't about bed warmers
5) They really do say 'Dive! Dive! Dive!'
6) A little grease, oil and dirt never killed anyone
7) But the smell of diesel fuel takes a long time to come out
8) Manuevering isn't about steering the ship
9) Control isn't about running the engines
10) There are 'facilities' in the engine room if it's urgent

Thanks for the tips! I will file them in my "if I am ever on a submarine" file...:)

Used to be you could drive down to Norfolk, VA and get a Navy base tour.

You could also get a submarine tour if you had a strong enough interest.

Usually the boat closest to the pier entrance was extra clean and tidy for just such things.
