    A section of a submarine being taken from the erection building to the ways. This photo shows clearly a section of a typical fleet submarine hull. The circular section stiffened by the cruciform supports (which would be removed when the section was in place) is the pressure hull. Surrounding that are tanks that may have been used for ballast or fuel depending on
    their position along the boat.
