Paulding 157kProvincetown, Massachusetts, December 18 1927, the Coast Guard destroyer USCGC Tucker (xDD-57) left and Coast Guard destroyer USCGC Paulding (xDD-22) right sit moored side-by-side. On 17 December 1927, USS S-4 (SS-109) was running submerged just off the coast of Provincetown, MA, conducting speed and maneuverability tests when it was struck by the Coast Guard destroyer USCGC Paulding (CG-17). The stricken sub with two holes (one in a ballast tank and one in the pressure hull) begin sinking as the freezing water flooded into the boat, causing her to heel to port and begin to sink by the bow. Paulding’s crew immediately marked their position on a chart and radioed their superiors. When the destroyer came to a halt, one of her lifeboats was lowered over the side. All it found was a small oil slick, which the men aboard marked with a buoy.Bill Gonyo
