Sub That 80 Americans Died On Found After 75 Years
Good man, you beat me to it.
To absent friends.
It's all good.
Saw that on the news last night. Good find. Evidently the team that located it is actively searching for other subs. So far they've found five. Their goal is to locate as many as they can.
A dozen ships in ten missions? That's a busy sub...going down in a pitch black sub waiting for the sides to cave in must be one of the top five worst ways to go, plus knowing you're remains may never be found, not given the religious rights before...they don't pay submariners enough in my opinion. Is it me or has there been an increase in the amount of ships/subs found? Feels/seems like either new technology is having a significant effect and /or there are more people looking?
I think a little of both. Some people actually care to look and have the tech to find them.
Kestrel is a very busy boat these days.
The rise in tech that has created all those billionaires has had at least one good side effect; enough have so much money they can say " Damn the Cost, full speed ahead"!
There certainly seems to have been a spike in expeditions launched/ships found'
God bless Paul Allan and all who think like him.
