those cant all be nukes.
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

I dunno. Those hull numbers all look like they are in the high 500s to 600s. And there weren't many US diesel subs that used the tear drop hull.


Looks like maybe Nautilus in there with some Skates and then later types.

I found the original pic at Navsource Online and Wikicommons. Based on the associated caption one of you guys with free time and internet access at work should be able to go through the list and tally up the nukes and d/e boats. I expect you to format the answers in an attached spreadsheet file with class, hull number, powerplant type, year of launch, decommissioning, number of tours, and notable events all in sortable columns.
Go to work!

One submarine tender and 16 decommissioned nuclear-powered submarines are shown including the USS Seawolf (SSN-575); six George Washington, and Benjamin Franklin class SSBN's (with their missile sections cut out) plus several Skate, Skipjack, Permit and Sturgeon class SSN's. All were awaiting scrapping. Identifiable boats are, from left to right: USS Thomas A. Edison (SSBN-610), USS Skipjack (SS-585), unidentifiable, USS Triton (SSRN-586), possibly the USS Benjamin Franklin (SSBN-640), unidentifiable, USS Skate (SSN-578), USS Sargo (SSN-583), USS Swordfish (SSN-579), USS Seawolf (SSN-575), unidentifiable. Behind them is the submarine tender USS Sperry (AS-12). Across the pier are what appear to be the USS Thomas Jefferson (SSBN-618), USS Patrick Henry (SSBN-599), USS George Washington (SSBN-598), unidentifiable, and maybe USS Barb (SSN-596).
