Diving and Surfacing - ..Hollywoods got it all wrong..

Nautilus, Seaview, and more

I have seen various Hollywood movies depicting both the surfacing and diving of a submarine. There is a certain "protocal" as far as the announcement and the sounding of the alarm horn.

When diving; the word "DIVE, DIVE" (spoken twice) is passed over the general announcement sytem with THREE blast of the diving horn.

Of course when surfacing, the word is passed three times; "SURFACE,SURFACE, SURFACE" with two blasts of the alarm horn.

... just trivia.... and something to post.
