I didn't know if I should turn this over to someone because I'm going to be busy (really) today.

But then everyone is going to be busy today .....

I removed the number because leaving it would have made this too easy.

It looks kind of like The Nautilus, SSN-571, but I don't believe it is. It seems too little to be a nuke. It has the lines of the Balao, though the conning tower looks wrong.

Your right, Its not the Nautilus.

I'm looking for the boat number , name , and present location.

Any one of these should get the other two.

I should reveal I took the picture and this is the only time the picture has been on the web.

Sorry about that, I was uploading an 'enhanced' picture, then my firewall said I wasn't ...

{edit} Yep, even with the firewall "off" the attachment window will only open once then I have to cycle the browser. interesting.{/edit}

It's the USS Requin, SS-481, or another Tench-class, isn't it? Moored in Pittsburgh now.

Well, it looks like the Carnegie Science Center in the background, so you tell me.

I had the Requin on Search, but I skipped it, 'cause I thought I can't be...
