|214k||A Pacific collection: From inboard to outboard: Sea Devil (SS-400), Redfish (SS-395), Baya (AGSS-318), Capitaine (SS-336) & Volador (SS-490).
This picture was taken sometime after January, 1964. At that time the Baya had emerged from a conversion that gave her the configuration that is shown here. This also correlates to the Guppy III in the background, the Volador. She was converted to this configuration in 1963. The rest of the boats have what is called the "Queenfish Mod", a minimal attempt at streamlining by removing all the deck guns and topside ammo lockers and cutting away small portions of the fairwater.
