"The USS Tarpon - Shark Boat"

a video presentation by

"Captain William "Bill" Palmer"

Built in Groton, Connecticut at Electric Boat in 1936, the USS Tarpon was the first all welded Submarine. She made 12 war patrols, her first was on December 9, 1941 and her last was in October of 1944. During her tour of duty she earned 7 battle stars. The Tarpon sank in 1957 while being towed. Today she rests in 145 ft of water and is probably one of the best dives off the North Carolina shore.
