As I was enjoying the views from Point Loma, this sub was being deployed and I figured it would make an interesting shot...

Great Pic! The boat is checking out the Sub meanwhile it has gone outside of the shipping lane and is going to have a close call with a channel marker in less than a min!!! The stuff you see when you fly, right?

No doubt about it, this is an 'Ohio' class nuclear powered ballistic missile submarine, the largest sub in the western world, and America's strategic nuclear deterrent. Its not everyday that one gets to see such a sub, so thanks to the photographer for sharing.

The three most powerful people in the world: The president of the USA, The Kremlin of Russia, and the captain of a US Navy Ballistic Missile Submarine. You can see one of them here.

I think the fishing boat is as much afraid to be in its way too much as it is checking it out... and I think it's the reason it's gonna have a close shave with that buoy in seconds...that was the first thing I noted, too.
