David,

Yes I do.  I put that in the midget submarine section without thinking to check here.

David,

I forgot to say that my information on F-4 is that she is in the small inlet that runs north from the West Loch channel.  I don't recall the name of that inlet off the top of my head, but she is reportedly on the west side of it.

Elena,

The points you mention are physical land points in the main channel.  

The inlet I am speaking of is a small body of water running north from the West Loch channel called "Walker Bay" or "Walker Inlet."  It's the place where a lot of old ships have been stored over the years.

Hi Ken : There is a bike path that leads by many mothballed ships - AK's, DDG's and floating drydock - very visible from the bike path.  Is this the inlet the F4 is located?

Hey there!

I am guessing it probably is, if the bike path runs along or close to Walker Bay.  I've seen it on a chart of Pearl but I haven't been there in ages.  You might ask the Navy for confirmation, although they are probably keeping the location secret to keep people from messing with her.  The last thing they need is for some sport diver to enter the hulk and get hurt.

[B]Sir:  I thought I posted this the other day but apparently did something wrong.  

F-4 sank in Magazine Loch, not West Loch.  I found this out by chance (my usual way of discovering things) while walking around the piers.  A sign marks it, and it is near the sign marking the departure point for USS Nautilus, from which she left on the NP voyage.  Again, by chance, while looking for PH MOH men graves in Arlington, I saw this huge marker and to my surprise it was for F-4 and men were listed on it.  I took slides of it.  Charles A. Jones.  PS:  the F-4 info is on page 88 of my book.
