The Seawolf is on its way home from a Westpac to Bangor today and should reach port by 4pm. The Seawolf is the first of its class. The Navy was originally going to upgrade their fast attack subs to the Seawolf's design but ended up going to the Virginia class. I remember when I was on the Louisiana. At the time, we were the newest boomer sub and the Seawolf was the newest fast attack. We played games with the Seawolf over several days putting them to the test. It was fun. There were times that the Seawolf could not find us and we were ordered to make noise to give them a hint. We were banging sledge hammers on the hull down in the lower level of the engine room. Needless to say, it did not take them long to find us once we started doing that!
