1Title:  USS Halibut in San Francisco Bay Add
 Summary:  The USS Halibut is shown steaming in San Francisco Bay. In 1965, the Halibut was converted from a guided missile submarine to a deep-sea intelligence gathering submarine, under the leadership of the Department of Defense's John Craven. The special equipment installed during the conversion included a mainframe computer, towed underwater vehicles, special video and photographic equipment, and a thrust/vector control system for enhanced navigation. The Halibut performed a range of intelligence tasks, most notably reconnaissance and recovery work at the site of a sunken Soviet Golf submarine, K-129.
