This week I’m hanging out with JMan. Yesterday we needed you know up GMan in York ME so we revisited the U.S. Albacore in Portsmouth NH I the way up. Go here for another post I did on the submarine.
JMan trying out a bunk.
This is the main propeller bearing. At one point the Albacore was split, lengthened and an extra motor was installed. It actually have two drive shafts, one is a tube and the other is inside. As the sub was a research vessel this was a very inventive way of testing different propulsion systems.
Quick drive into downtown Portsmouth for lunch at Fat Belly’s. Good food and good service and no lines.
As we’d say in Ireland “it’s a soft day” or “it’s a grand high stool day”. We settled for breakfast at Blackbird Cafe and some game time.
