    RE: USS Grouper ss-214

    The pleasure is all mine Skull 1971, and to answer your question Dave, Yes, I found the vent valve whichhad been previouslyinstalledwas notholdinga sealto the ballast tankwhen set for surface operations atthe time thevideo was taken. I've since replaced that valve with a new and improved ventvalve,so the free board trim level should hopefullybe higher now. In addition, I've also stuffed a bit more foam into the forward sections of the boatin hopes of bringing upthebow a tad more.
    Thanks for yourconcern.

    Al,

    On going adjustmentsare beingmade to attain a scale like surface trim, but have not had an opportunity to check herat the pond as yet. Hopefully soon.

    Here is another video though showing the freeboard surface trim, while still not perfect though.
    http://youtu.be/kp5nkTdM9j0 Enjoy!

    Also a more recent still photo asshe sets, andas further adjustment with trimming continue.
