USS HENRY CLAY SSBN-625
PRIMER ON SIDE
Here's a nice side view of the freshly primed
hull. The side views were taken
with a very wide-angle lens. The effect of the wide-angle lens was to make
the ship look a lot more streamlined than it actually was. While it looks almost
like a "rocket ship" in this photo, the ship's hull was fatter than might be expected.
It looked more like one of the Navy's old, giant airships!
