Two Years Before the Periscope. Lahaina at Last!

Just as hundreds of years ago when the natives would paddle out in outrigger canoes to greet Captain Cook or Captain Bligh, the natives come to greet the Sterlet as it pulls into the ancient whaling port of Lahaina, Maui. Sterlet remained anchored off-shore because there was no place to moor a submarine in Lahaina.

Swim Call! Crew goes swimming off the stern of the Sterlet while she is anchored off Lahaina. Gee, the Navy was fun!
