Well time for some fun on this Blog…

We spent our last day in Peru inside a Submarine and it was cool.  This was my first time inside and I have to say respect to Submariners, tight places and submerged.

The ship which is a museum was an Abtao Class submarine they were modified US Mackerel Class. This submarines never served in the US Navy.

Abtao (1953) Pennant number 5, from 1959 SS-2, from 1960 SS-42. Completed in February 1954, initially known as Tiburon, but renamed Abtao in April 1957.Decommissioned in 1998 and became a museum ship in 2004

Without further ado here are the photos of this graceful lady of the deep. Enjoy
