Like other Portsmouth designed boats, the anchor is on the port side. The bulge in the left side of the bridge is for clearance of the access hatch for the bridge.||USN Archives photo # 19-N-48984.

|110k|| A front view of the front 40mm gun aboard an unknown sub, possibly the Cabrilla (SS-288). These guns proved to be very effective against small surface targets and aircraft. Some boats had these guns mounted either forward and / or aft on the bridge gun deck. Details of the shears show the arrangement of the lookout platforms and the range light and the PPI antenna. Both scopes are lowered.

|112k||What could be the Cabrilla (SS-288) on her patrol off Christmas Island, January-March 1944, in a charcoal drawing by the artist Griffith Baily Coale entitled "Lookouts--U.S. Submarine".
"Rolling along the blue surface of the Indian Ocean, lookouts search the empty sky and the sea. They look for everyone, friend or foe. Besides these five men, just aft was the Junior Officer and his lookout, also watching. The man at the top of the periscope sheers spotted a distant sub on the surface.
There was no record of one of our boats in this vicinity. In ten seconds every man is below, the hatch bangs shut, the deck tips forward and they disappear below the vast surface of the ocean. Later they rise to pericope height, the Captain makes a sweep. "Blow the tanks- equalize the pressure - crack the hatch - Lookouts up!" In ten seconds the lookouts are back on deck searching."
