USS HENRY CLAY SSBN-625
CROSSING THE HARBOR
Guam's Apra Harbor is actually composed of an
inner and outer harbor, with a
channel between them. After leaving the tenders in the inner harbor, the tugs
moved the ship through the channel to the floating drydock in the outer harbor.
Here the Henry Clay is seen crossing the outer harbor to the drydock. Note that
the ship's rudder was clearly turned to starboard (the ship's right) assisting in
steering the combined mass of the ship and tugs.
