click to enlarge THE USS L-8:
Story of the First Submarine Built by the U.S. Navy

by Captain Bill Palmer
DVD +R, 25 minutes
Price: $19.95
The L-8 was the first submarine built by the U.S. Navy. A Simon Lake design, she was built at Portsmouth Shipyard in 1915. In 1926 she was used as a target to test magnetic torpedos—the first and only use of a magnetic torpedo prior to World War II. Today the L-8 rests in 110 feet of water five miles south of Newport, Rhode Island. The visibility varies from a few feet to 30 feet. This sub is a must dive for marine history buffs.
