One thing that's immediately clear while exploring this submarine is that you wouldn't want to be claustrophobic. Not surprisingly, there's little room for added comforts. The number of gauges, levers, and switches is also overwhelming, and you almost can't believe that anyone was able to make sense of it all. The USS Bowfin has been beautifully restored and maintained, and with Pearl Harbor as a backdrop, it's a thoroughly authentic place to get lost in World War 2 history.
