Bonefish 906k Undated painting by Lloyds of Vallejo.
Although the Mare Island built Gato class submarine accompanying the Proteus (AS-19) is unnumbered, it is possible it is the Wahoo (SS-238), and the painting was made to memorialize her sinking in October 1943 along with the commissioning of Proteus in January 1944.
