Prior to her commissioning, O-13 rammed and sank Mary Alice, a section patrol boat accompanying the recently completed submarine during her submerged trails in Long Island Sound, 5 October 1918. O-13 struck and holed the patrol ship amidships; although Mary Alice sank with minutes, O-13 rescued her crew.
It is highly unlikely that the sailors on board the deck of O-13 in this photo are from the Mary Alice, but it gives you an idea of how 60 plus men fit on her small deck.
