    USS Pampanito is in SF, as well; a Balao Class boat.

    For those with more than a passing interest in the Silent Service, there are copies of the patrol logs here and here.

    They make for fascinating reading.
     
  2. USS Cod (SS-224) a Gato Class boat is moored in Lake Erie in Cleveland Ohio, and is open for tours.

    On a related theme the bell from the wreck of a steam vessel sunk by a German U-boat in a WWI torpedo attack has gone on display for the first time in Greater Manchester.
