USS San Francisco. Ouch!

Script that went with the photo.
Apra Harbor, Guam (Jan. 26, 2005) - The Los Angeles-class fast-attack submarine USS San Francisco (SSN 711) in dry dock to assess damage sustained after running aground approximately 350 miles south of Guam Jan. 8, 2005. The Navy former dry dock known as “Big Blue” is capable of docking ships that weigh up to 40,000 Long Tons. The Navy certified Big Blue for the one-time docking of San Francisco. San Francisco is the second fast-attack submarine to be attached to the forward-deployed Submarine Squadron Fifteen, home ported on board Naval Base Guam.

I was in Guam 2 1/2 years and nothing more exciting than a Russky trawler offshore the whole time!

Cool pic. That's why I could never serve on a sub.

It didn't run aground, it hit an underwater hill at 40knots.
