My first boat was the USS Halibut (SSGN/SSN 587)
The Halibut was an interesting tour of duty. She was the first nuclear powered guided missile firing submarine and also the first US Navy submarine to complete the Navy's SubSafe overhaul after the loss of the USS Thresher. Several books about the boat have been written including SPY SUB and BLIND MAN'S BLUFF , which I would highly recommend as worth reading.
