Court-martial for using "Squailfish"?[edit]

That could not be possible because then all the sailors would be marooned and/or court-martialed —Preceding unsigned comment added by Joao 11 1996 (talkcontribs) 17:12, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

Sailfish, Sturgeon, and Snapper[edit]

The article mentions that accidents similar to that suffered by Sailfish also occurred on Sturgeon and Snapper. However, the Wikipedia articles on those two submarines mention no such incidents. Jgoulden (talk) 16:18, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Kamikawa Maru[edit]

The article notes that this was one of the ships sunk by the Sailfish. However, the article for that ship notes that it was sunk by USS Scamp (SS-277) in May 1943. Does anyone know which sub it was that sunk her? JJJJS (talk) 18:27, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

Good catch. It was Scamp, per Blair, pp.475-6. Dick Voge actually sank Kamogawa Maru, per Blair, p.187. TREKphiler any time you're ready, Uhura 06:01, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

Perfect 10[edit]

Just to be clear, Magus732: I find the use of "10th" esthetically displeasing, & I would use "ten" rather than "10" except in dates, given the choice. I won't, however, start an edit war over it. TREKphiler any time you're ready, Uhura 06:01, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

Reason for sinking[edit]

The article mentions that Squalus was raised so that the Navy could figure out why she sank. However, it is not stated whether the cause was actually determined. If the cause is known, there should be a section detailing it. Hellbus (talk) 00:42, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Not stated? "Failure of the main induction valve caused the flooding of the aft torpedo room", & it was similar to accidets in Snapper & Sturgeon. Try reading the page? TREKphiler any time you're ready, Uhura 01:03, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
Must have missed it. I'm moving that part of the article to after the recovery. Hellbus (talk) 03:33, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

Article states location of sinking is 42°53′N 70°37′W.[edit]

Article states location of sinking is 42°53′N 70°37′W. Could someone point out the reference where these coordinates came from? Are there more precise coordinates somewhere? These are rounded to the nearest minute which is rounding to the nearest mile or so. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:26, 1 December 2013 (UTC)
