Opportune or Grampus?

Discussion in 'Submariners' started by electric_chef, Jan 20, 2007.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. my last two boats, anybody know where their last resting places are?
  2. If Grampus was SO4 then She was sunk as a target in 1980.

    As for Oppertune she was sold in 1992 but not sure who to.
  3. thanks for that,

    in that case, very apt for Grampus, she was a piece of junk they probably couldn't sell anyway, and I have fond memories of life on board Opportune.
