USS "Oh crap we're stuck" Sep 03, 2008
The USS Albacore was a naval research vessel that earned the title of "World's Fasted Submarine" in 1966. 2/3 the size of a WWII vessel, this ship was used to debug new submarine technology such as escape mechanisms, propulsion, and sonar.

USS Albacore Aug 18, 2007
Although it’s just a tiny sub it’s still fun to look around. The reason she is so tiny is because she was one of the first. They have a nice little park where she is currently sitting in Portsmouth NH. A small little submarine museum for a small little submarine it looks more cute than it does threatening. Not at all expensive you crawl in there and feel what it was like to spend time on a sub. It’s one of those things you always pass bye and say maybe next year, well don’t. Just go now! It’s fun and you learn so much just trolling around the grounds or the sub whatever. Its wicked cheap and not way out of the way. Kittery Maine is just over the border so after your done in the Albacore you can go shopping at all the outlet malls. Also being in historic Portsmouth New Hampshire, there is plenty else to do as well.
There she is the USS Albacore
