On January 6th, 1969, a 118-foot research vessel named the R/V Sea Surveyor departed Groton, CT on a testing mission for the United States Navy. The mission was routine: Sail from Electric Boat, rendezvous with a submarine, conduct tests, return home but she never made it to her destination and never returned to port. Learn about the R/V Sea Surveyor, her mission, and the incredible experience twelve crewmen had after her sinking in a presentation by Walter Banzhaf, one of the twelve survivors of the Sea Surveyor.
