The Hamlin/Sodders sub

I got this from the daughter of Sodders.  She doesn't have much
more on the sub, and this is all she has on what was happening
after 1950.  The most interesting aspect of this was that the
Navy tested the little tracked boat in 1950, and it was still
intact enough to be considered for operations 15 years later.
