USS Pampanito (SS-383) Wish List

Pampanito Wish List


The following are lists of equipment and manuals commonly found on WW II fleet submarines that are needed by USS Pampanito. Separate lists of tools and major project funding needs are included at the end of the page.

The Maritime Park Association hopes to obtain these items to further the restoration of USS Pampanito, a 1943 Balao class, Fleet type, Portsmouth built submarine. It is our goal to make USS Pampanito as complete, and as accurate as possible. We have chosen to work towards a summer, 1945 configuration to represent the height of WW II submarine development.
