Albacore Redux Part 2 - Officer Country: I got lucky by having the submarine Albacore all to myself for a while yesterday. We entered the boat in the forward compartment, shown in the (from the internet) diagram below, which houses the fwd crews quarters escape trunk and sonar array (unseen). Stepping through the hatch into the officer country, the photo below shows a look back into the forward compartment. This compartment is officers' quarters. Immediately upon stepping in, there's the officer's wardroom pantry on the right, with a sliding window into the wardroom. Below are two views of the wardroom. Across the hall is the CO's stateroom. That is followed by the officers stateroom, only part of which is shown below. The officer's head is, of course, nearby. Also in this compartment is the ship's office and attached comm center. Aft from officer country is the hatch into the control room. The control room will be part 3 of this RR. Part 3 to follow as soon as I get the pics converted and uploaded.
