Aids to Safety In Submarine Work
Baltimore Sun, Jan. 12.—The U.S.S. S-22 has just completed a thorough overhaul lasting four and a half months in the navy yard at Portsmouth, N.H. During this overhaul every safety device approved by the Navy Department was installed on board.
Two harbor buoys, which are cylindrical tanks about 4^2 feet long and about 2y2 feet in diameter, are installed, one on the bow and one on the stern, each being fitted so that it can be released from the torpedo room and motor room, respectively. Each buoy is painted yellow and carries an electric light supplied from the ship’s current through a wire in the anchor cable of the buoy.
