tad1, I think you're a little off, buddy. The Hunley has been in a fresh-water tank to preserve it but was available for viewing (not very good views from what I've been told- the time my wife and I went to see it, it was closed). Article says they are redoing the tank for better viewing and to aid in the restoration. Next trip to Charleston I hope to see it.

Not the same article I read but close-


Retired and now I am in the woods or fishin'.... anything but work.

Great book detailing Civil War submarine warfare.

Even though the Hunley was a death trap and many knew that they had no problem getting volunteers to man it .
If your Dog doesn't like someone you probably won't like them either !
