  1. Just out of curiosity, are the sailors topside right next to the radar in any danger due to EM radiation from the radar antenna? They seem to be staring it right in the face.

  2. 20 years later and the fire is still from the deep fat fryer in the galley. lol. Hope they don't ever have a fire somewhere else, Damage Control team will have it so ingrained into their head to go to the galley.

  3. Question: Does anyone know how the sailors protect the submarine when outside on the top? I know sometimes there is a navy boat or war ship that protects them, but how is it done when there’s not a boat nearby the submarine and they are on the surface? Do they have carryable rifles or machine guns that are easily accessible like the navy ships have?

  4. Highlights of life in a submarine

    For the parts inside the sub, here a few descriptions:

    0:22 taking logs on the CO-H2 Burner

    1:31 taking logs on the CO2 Scrubber

    1:45 valve line ups for Snorkeling with the Diesel.

    2:00 starting the Diesel with air.

    2:14 the Diesel running

    2:34 taking logs on the Diesel.

    2:48 you can hear the turbos on the Diesel, while he is checking oil levels

    3:18 cleaning sampling equipment

    3:36 more training.

    4:16 begins a fire drill

    4:20 begins "sucking rubber," that is what we call having to put full face masks on.

    4:32 air hose connections for your full face mask.. you don't hook up right, you don't breath..

    4:42 in a fire onboard everyone had to wear full face masks…. or you asphyxiate…

    (people with no masks on a running/monitoring the fire drill)

    7:24 fire team running the fire drill

    7:30 scene fire team leader coordinating the fire team response

    8:08 fire hose nozzleman from fire team approaching the fire

    (the reason he is crawling is a fire's highest temperatures are high in the space, by staying low you avoid high temperatures)

    8:25 right behind fire hose nozzleman is the man with the Infrared Thermal Imager, who can see through the smoke, and yells out to the nozzleman where to direct his water stream…

    8:52 cover for the full face mask to simulate low visibility due to heavy smoke in the air

    14:51 bringing up the gear to set up railing on top of the sail of the submarine (they are inbound to port)

  5. Always impressed with you all submariners. Still can't figure out why all your masts are up on when you are on the surface. I'd appreciate some info. Former combat paratrooper here.
