The USS Georgia - Is the sub still on patrol?

This is the place to read all about submarines in the real world!

I saw a ducumentary about Submarines by the Discovery Channel. The narrator said information about the use of submarines today and in the past. Comparing them between the two times. There was also a comparison between a Russian Typhoon and a Ohio class submarine. It was the USS Georgia (I know, the longest submarine in the world..) the captain gave us a tour of the ship, how it fires missiles, etc. After finding more information on SSBNs, I was wondering if there was any news about the Georgia still patroling the waters. Well, you might find this unusual, but I do live in Canada..... so there isn't really information going on about US subs. Do any of you guys know 'bout this? :laugh:

Hi Capn',

The USS Georgia (SSBN 729) is currently in service and homeported at the Bangor Naval Base in Washington state. She is scheduled for a conversion to a SSGN in 2004.

Like a lot of U.S. Navy ships, she has her own web page too! Check out USS Georgia

-hope this helps,

Jeff
