14 - CUBERA'S bow underway at sea. Farthest away in the upper right is the bronze cylinder of the forward capstan. The light grey oval nearer on the left is the forward rescue buoy. To the right of the buoy, in the center, is the large flat international standard submarine rescue pad around the forward torpedo room hatch. The closer dark oval is the deck opening with steps leading to the side door of the forward escape trunk. On deck a safety harness track snakes around the other deck features. A retrieved 'practice' MK37(?) is secured on deck, with screw-guard in place.
