I was fishing near Fort Moultrie, SC, in the late '80s when I saw a strange thing entering the harbor. It was the USS Bonefish being towed back to its homeport in Charleston after a fire broke out during exercises killing 3 people. As I recall, it was strung between two ocean-going tugs for the part of the journey I witnessed and made a bizarre sight when it appeared on the horizon. I did a little research and was astonished at how many dozens of subs have been damaged and lost over the years.
