    Retired submariner looking for your help and advice

    Post  Subvetpiper on Tue Jul 31, 2018 3:12 pm

    Gents,

    I am a retired U.S. submariner working on a doctorate in nautical archaeology.  Mt research topic is the H-1 ex Seawolf which sank off the coast of Mexico in 1920.  I am interested in any original source information on the class and any advice you might have on sources.  One of the areas that I wish to highlight is the experience of living aboard these boats so any first-person accounts would be invaluable.

    I am amazed at the quality of your models has anyone modeled an H boat?

    Yours aye,
    Rich Hendren

    Well worth while also posting this on the (US Based) SubCommittee also, if you haven't already.
