I'm maybe 550-600 here just outside the shipping
Very common on the approaches to Norfolk. Of course it is easy to know they are coming because they are broadcasting constant advisories on CH16.
Except... for the smaller subs. Those donít get the same protective shield as the big boomers, and sometime donít even broadcast securite messages. Last time coming in we had a small sub get way closer than Iíd like without a bit of notice. Nothing dangerous, but a case of ďWhatís that? Right over there?Ē They are hard to see!
