USS Sablefish

Today I noticed that I had not posted once in 2012. Thankfully I am still able to add a new message before the year ends!

The site still is very active and I continue to receive e-mail messages as well as comments from all over the world concerning the ships depicted. Whether the message is from an “old salt” himself, a descendent or someone who fondly remembers watching the ships go by as a kid it just proves that although these ships are long gone they are not forgotten.

The sole picture for this year will be neither a mystery or even a ship but a submarine! The USS Sablefish plied the Great Lakes in 1959 and returned in 1961. The photo shows her on the St. Clair River. The submarine was commissioned on December 18, 1945 and decommissioned on November 1, 1969.

Don’t forget to check back now and then! While there may not be many new posts there will always be corrections, updates and maybe even an identification or two!
