A submarine and its accompanying boats travel slowly down the Shoreline Sea, headed for its Kitsap port, probably Bremerton.

You have to be looking out over the Shoreline Sea at the right time to know that a sub is there because it is never announced in the normal fashion.

Jan Hansen did some research and believes that this may well be the USS Bremerton which is scheduled to be decommissioned this year. The SSN 698 is the oldest submarine in the Navy.

According to Navy information, "Measuring more than 300 feet long and weighing more than 6,000 tons when submerged, Bremerton is capable of supporting a multitude of missions, including anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare and mine warfare."
