Kraken (SS-370) was launched 30 April 1944, by the Manitowoc Shipbuilding Co., Manitowoc, Wis., sponsored by Mrs. John Z. Anderson, wife of Congressman Anderson of California; and commissioned 8 September 1944, Comdr. Thomas H. Henry in command.

Kraken steamed by way of Chicago to Lockport, Ill., 27 September 1944, and was towed in 11oating dry dock down the Mississippi River arriving at Algiers, La., 4 October. Ten days later Kraken cleared Algiers, transited the Panama Canal and underwent intensive training in the Gulf of Panama. She sailed for Hawaii 4 November and arrived Pearl Harbor the 21st.

Kraken departed Pearl Harbor 12 December 1944, for her first war patrol, touched at Saipan the 23d, set course for Indochina next morning. There she maintained lifeguard duty in support of 3d Fleet Carrier strikes. While on station she rescued a Lezington pilot from rough seas and evaded a strafing enemy plane by diving. Finding no targets Kraken set course for Fremantle, Australia arriving there 14 February 1945.

Kraken departed on her second war patrol 15 March and maintained lifeguard duty in the South China Sea supporting aircraft earrier strikes against Singapore and Saigon. She returned to Subic Bay, P.I., 26 April.

Departing on her third war patrol on 19 May 1945 Rra7cen set course for the Gulf of Siam. After searching in vain for enemy targets, she shifted to the Java Sea where on 19 June she bombarded Merak and Kiddled a coaster and a small ship with 5-inch and 40mm. projectiles. She saw the coaster sink and she left the small ship ablaze before clearing the harbor. Three days later, while chasing an eight-ship convoy, Krakents torpedoes sank an oiler and a coastal steamer and her guns infIicted heavy damage on one of the Japanese submarine chasers. Then Kraken proudly sailed into Fremantle, Australia 3 July 1945, ending her most successful patrol.

Kraken sailed on her fourth and last patrol 29 July. While seeking the enemy in the Java Sea, her patrol was cut short when she received news of Japan's capitulation. Sailing for Subic Bay, she arrived 21 August.

Kraken cleared Subic Bay 31 August 1945, touched at Pearl Harbor, and arrived at San Francisco 22 September. On 14 October she rendezvoused with Halsey's 3d Fleet and formed a part of honor escort for Admiral Halsey, as he passed under the Golden Gate Bridge in Flagship, South Dakota. Ten days later Kraken visited Longview, Wash., for the first postwar Navy Day celebrations and returned to San Francisco 31 October where she was placed out of commission 4 May 1946.

Kraken remained in reserve status until 18 September 1958, when she was assigned to Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard for activation overhaul and Stting out preparatory to transfer for loan to the Spanish Government 17 October 1958. She serves the Spanish Navy as Almirante Garcia ( S - l ).

Kraken received one battle star for World War II service.

Sisällysluettelo

Alus tilattiin Manitowoc Shipbuilding Companyltä Manitowocista Wisconsinista, missä köli laskettiin 13. joulukuuta 1943. Alus laskettiin vesille 30. huhtikuuta 1944 kumminaan Kalifornian kongressiedustajan John Z. Andersonin puoliso ja otettiin palvelukseen 8. syyskuuta ensimmäisenä päällikkönään Thomas H. Henry. [1]

Alus matkasi 27. syyskuuta 1944 Chicagosta Lockportiin Illinoisiin, mistä kuivatelakka siirsi aluksen alas Mississippijokea. Alus saapui 4. lokakuuta Algiersiin Lousianaan, mistä se jatkoi kymmenen päivää myöhemmin matkaansa. Alus läpäisi Panaman kanavan, minkä jälkeen se oli jatkuvassa koulutuksessa Panamanlahdella. Alus lähti 4. marraskuuta Havaijille ja saapui Pearl Harboriin 21. marraskuuta. [1]

Alus lähti 12. joulukuuta ensimmäiselle partiomatkalleen ja saapui 23. joulukuuta Saipanille, mistä se jatkoi matkaansa Indokiinaan seuraavana aamuna. Alus oli 3. laivaston lentäjien pelastusaluksena, jolloin se pelasti USS Lexingtonin pudonneen lentäjän myrskyävältä mereltä. Alus joutui tekemään hätäsukelluksen japanilaisen lentokoneen rynnäköidessä. Alus ei löytänyt maaleja ja se suuntasi Fremantleen Australiaan, minne se saapui 14. helmikuuta 1945. [1]

Alus aloitti 15. maaliskuuta toisen partiomatkansa ollen jälleen pelastusaluksena Etelä-Kiinan merellä tukien lentotukialuskoneiden hyökkäyksiä Singaporeen ja Saigoniin. Alus palasi Subicinlahdelle 26. huhtikuuta. [1]

Kolmas partiomatka alkoi 19. toukokuuta, kun alus suuntasi Siaminlahdelle. Etsittyään maaleja tuloksetta alus siirtyi Jaavanmerelle, missä alus tulitti 19. kesäkuuta Merakia ja ampui rannikkoalusta ja toista pientä alusta 5 tuuman ja 40 millimetrin tykein. Rahtialus upposi ja pienempi alus oli tulessa satamasta päästyään. Kolme päivää myöhemmin ajaessaan takaa kahdeksan aluksen saattuetta sukellusvene upotti torpedoimalla tankkerin ja rannikkoaluksen. Lisäksi aluksen tykkituli vaurioitti yhtä japanilaisten sukellusveneidentorjunta-alusta. Kraken purjehti Fremantleen, jonne se saapui 3. heinäkuuta. [1]

Alus lähti 29. heinäkuuta neljännelle partiomatkalleen. Vaikka alus havaitsi maaleja Jaavanmerellä niin matka keskeytyi aluksen miehistön saatua tiedon Japanin antautumisesta. Alus siirtyi Subic Bayhin, jonne se saapui 21. elokuuta. [1]

Alus lähti 31. elokuuta Pearl Harborin kautta San Franciscoon, jonne se saapui 22. syyskuuta. Alus kohtasi 14. lokakuuta amiraali Halseyn komentaman 3. laivaston liittyen Halseyn kunniavartioon lippulaiva USS South Dakotan alittaessa Golden Gaten. Kymmenen päivää myöhemmin alus vieraili Longview'ssa Washingtonissa ensimmäisessä sodanjälkeisessä laivastopäivän vietossa, mistä se palasi San Franciscoon 31. lokakuuta. [1]

Alus poistettiin palveluksesta 4. toukokuuta 1946 ja siirrettiin reserviin. Alus palautettiin palvelukseen 18. syyskuuta 1958, jolloin se siirrettiin Pearl Harborin laivastontelakalle palvelukseen palauttamista ja Espanjalle luovutusta varten. Alus lainattiin Espanjalle MDAP-ohjelman puitteissa 17. lokakuuta 1958. [1]

Espanjan laivasto otti aluksen palvelukseen 25. lokakuuta 1959 nimellä Almirante García de los Reyes (E1) [1] . Natoon liittymisen jälkeen laivasto otti 1961 käyttöön uuden runkonumeroinnin, jolloin aluksen runkonumeroksi tuli S31. 1960-luvulla alus oli laivaston ainoa modernisukellusvene. Sukellusvenelaivaston muut alukset olivat saksalainen tyypin VIIC (U-573) ja kolme vanhaa D-luokan venettä.

Alus matkasi Pearl Harborista Panaman kanavan kautta Cartagenaan, jonne se saapui tammikuun lopulla 1960. Espanja osti aluksen 16. syyskuuta 1974 ja Yhdysvaltain laivasto poisti sen alusluettelosta 1. marraskuuta 1974. Oston yhteydessä alus poistettiin palveluksesta ja siitä piti tulla vara-osa, mutta alus kunnostettiin ja palautettiin palvelukseen 1. syyskuuta 1975 korvaamaan Narciso Monturiol (S33) ex-USS Picuda (SS-382), jossa tapahtui vakava konerikko edellisenä keväänä. Alus poistettiin palveluksesta huhtikuussa 1981 ja romutettiin.

SUBJ: 1:48 SCALE BALAO CLASS SUBMARINE TO JOIN THE RC FLEET.

With the safe arrival of a 1:48 Scale GATO/BALAO Class Hull to the “Individual Anemics Radio Control Electric Boat Division” shipyard (Thank you Bob Martin for providing this hull and myself a much desired build opportunity), this “presumed late 90’s, early 00’s Scale Shipyard Hull” can now be considered as “having had her keel” officially laid.

After much (well, not really…..) consideration, the prototype has officially been chosen to be:

Keel Laid – December 14, 1943

One of the “Manitowoc 28” based on the EB Design.

A legendary sea monster believed to haunt the coasts of Norway.

Kraken (SS-370) was launched 30 April 1944, by the Manitowoc Shipbuilding Co., Manitowoc, Wis. sponsored by Mrs. John Z. Anderson, wife of Congressman Anderson of California and commissioned 8 September 1944, Comdr. Thomas H. Henry in command.

Kraken steamed by way of Chicago to Lockport, III., 27 September 1944, and was towed in floating dry dock down the Mississippi River arriving at Algiers, La., 4 October.

While not the most legendary of WWII Fleet boats, (can you say TANG, BOWFIN, etc ?), I felt as one of the freshwater “Manitowoc 28”, she would be unique enough to warrant my choosing. Plus, her name clicks with my local club, and I just really dig that sea dragon Insignia of hers! It was even displayed on her Conning tower along with her war accomplishment markings (Vessels Kills, Damaged, Shore Bombardment, Pilot rescue and Minelaying ops) immediately Post War (This photo circa September) 1945. This is how I plan to represent her, mid-October 1945 October she rendezvoused with Halsey's 3d Fleet and formed a part of honor escort for Admiral Halsey, as he passed under the Golden Gate Bridge in Flagship, USS SOUTH DAKOTA BB-57.


Fortunately, or perhaps seemingly unfortunate to some of you, I have a bit of a backlog. This counts as 1 of three hulls starting from scratch (the other two being SSN-571 and a Springer tug). All others are refits, repairs from minor to major and fit in as time allows.

This Offseason will mark competion of PROTEUS & Krick U25. The GROTON Springer tug must come 3rd for possible sub retrieval next spring lol. If all goes well, possibly even K432 and BLUEBACK before end of spring due to the state of refit.

PROTEUS: New Build (In process, Internals at 90%)
U25: Refit (In process, Internals at 25%) Fairly easy refit
GROTON, Twin Shaft Springer Tug, faux RC Submarine Rescue tug (Purchased items complete need to start)
ALFA K423: Refit (Purchased items complete need to start) Fairly easy refit
USS BLUEBACK (Purchased items complete need to start) Fairly easy refit
USS KEY WEST (Purchased items complete need to start) Moderate refit with a used hull from Bob M.
USS ULYSSES S GRANT (Purchased items complete need to start) Fairly easy refit
Disney NAUTILUS: New Build (Internals at 75%)
SSRN SEAVIEW (Purchased items complete need to start) HEAVY refit
USS NAUTILUS: New Build (Purchased items complete need to start)
USS KRAKEN: New build
MYSTIC, 1:48 Natick CLASS TUG (Purchased items complete need to start) Moderate refit

SEAVIEW is a floater, she requires some extensive fiberglass repair, shows her age. USS NAUTILUS and USS KRAKEN are very similar operationally and can almost be built in parallel, Engineering wise that is. Plus it’s that type of boat that lends itself to those boring, lazy Saturday afternoons where “Limber Hole filing” actually becomes a form of meditation. Though you can see from the photo’s, she is very minimalistic there, incorporating more of a “slot” above the tanks heading aft on her freeboard. That itself may be problematic in incorporating, but adds to the uniqueness.

Because I’m feeling particularly nostalgic, I plan to build her "old school" honoring the methods the pioneers such Skip Assay, Mike Dory, Bud Lederer, Greg Sharpe recommended all those years ago. Yes, lot’s of thumb nuts, cork/oil gasket and quick charge access using Gatorade Caps (remember that boys!!) I'll be relying heavily on Rich Kohlbrecher with his experience on this hull, incorporating his lessons learned. Capt. Kohlbrecher, as you may know won the BOTTOM GUN Award 6x at the Groton SubRegatta’a with his Generic “Fleet Boat”, now USS TILEFISH SS-307 The rest of you feel free to comment and suggest once she's started and the post’s come up. After all it’s takes a community to build a boat! The difference is she will be 2.4Ghz. I’ve grown quite attached to the telemetry.

Though my style focuses more on Engineering, and robust (Terminator T100 Grade) construction, I plan KRAKEN to be my ultimate "eye candy" boat. This build will also honor Dave Merriman. and Bob Martin. not only in terms of modern construction techniques but primarily in their methods of detailing and weathering. I'll be leaning on you ALL heavily for ideas and suggestions. Any Fleet boat experts know of a good source for plans?

I seem to be building the evolution of the US Attack Sub in 1:48 Scale lol

The simple joy of an RC Sub build….the best part of the process!

Hoping to have her wet late 2021/early 2022.

MH370 Shipwrecks Among Deepest Ever Discovered

The two 19th century shipwrecks discovered in the hunt for the missing MH370 passenger jet are among the deepest and most remote ever found, an Australian scientist has told the Associated Press.

The coal merchant ships&mdashone wooden and one iron&mdashwere found around 21 miles apart and more than 2 miles below the surface of the Indian Ocean in 2015.

Search teams initially hoped one of the wrecks marked the final resting place of the airliner that disappeared with 239 people aboard in March 2014. Recent analysis by experts at the Western Australian Museum may have dashed these hopes, but has shed light on two other long-forgotten tragedies.

Both shipwrecks remain unidentified, but using sonar and video data of the wrecks alongside shipping records, the scientists were able to suggest a list of missing vessels that fit the bill. Coal was found around both wrecks, marking them out as merchant craft using the "Roaring 40s" westerly winds to travel the important trading route from the northern hemisphere to Southeast Asia, China, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.

According to the Western Australian Museum curator of maritime archaeology Ross Anderson, a "catastrophic" event such as an explosion may have been to blame. Such accidents were a common concern on coal transport ships of the era.

The wooden ship could be the missing brig W. Gordon or the barque Magdala. W. Gordon was on a voyage from the U.K. to Australia when it disappeared in 1877 with 10 crew aboard. Magdala was lost in 1882 while sailing from Wales to Indonesia.

The iron ship could be one of three missing vessels: the Kooringa (1894), Lake Ontario (1897) or West Ridge (1883). Anderson said the West Ridge&mdashlost while sailing from the U.K. to India with 28 sailors in 1883&mdashis the most likely candidate. A sample taken from the wreck showed that the coal on the seabed was British.

That said, Anderson doubted that the identities of the two deepest wrecks found in the Indian Ocean would ever be confirmed without a wealthy private benefactor, because of their depth and remoteness. "These are the deepest wrecks so far located in the Indian Ocean, they're some of the most remote shipwrecks in the world," he said.

The ships were found between 2.2 and 2.4 miles below the surface. The wrecks were around 1,450 miles from the west Australian coast. For reference, one of the most famous shipwrecks in history&mdashthe RMS Titanic&mdashsits at a depth of 2.37 miles, but a mere 370 miles off the Canadian coast in the Atlantic Ocean.

The deepest wreck ever found is the SS Rio Grande, a World War Two German blockade runner sunk by American ships in the South Atlantic Ocean in January 1944. The wreck restes 3.57 miles below the ocean, and was discovered in 1996 using sonar technology and remotely operated vehicles.

Given that around 95 percent of all oceans remain unexplored, there are no doubt deeper and more remote wrecks. As technology improves, more lost vessels will be found, whether through targeted searches or&mdashas in this case&mdashaccidentally.


Cracking Landlocked Wyoming, Kraken Wins First Crypto Bank Charter In U.S. History

Wyoming is doubly landlocked, meaning you have to cross two jurisdictions to reach a major body of water such as a sea or ocean. However, when it comes to banking digital assets, the ‘Equality State’ has suddenly become the most dynamic, flexible, and liquid across the entire U.S.

As of today, Kraken, an American-based cryptocurrency exchange operating since 2011, ranked #6 in the world according to www.messari.io, has been granted the first special purpose depository institution (SPDI) charter in Wyoming. The SPDI charter (pronounced “speedy”), breaks all kinds of records in banking that is hard to immediately consume.

I had a chance to sit down with Marco Santori, Chief Legal Officer at Kraken. Previously, Santori was the President and Chief Legal Officer at Blockchain, and prior to that, he was a Partner at Cooley LLP where he was instrumental in the Delaware Blockchain Initiative. Santori helps provide some much-needed context from Kraken’s viewpoint on the importance and meaning of the SPDI charter in Wyoming.

Marco Santori, Chief Legal Officer at Kraken, formerly was in-house counsel at Blockchain.com, and . [+] prior to that, an attorney at Cooley and had worked on the Delaware Blockchain Initiative. His nickname in the crypto space is the 'Dean of Digital Assets'.

Jason Brett: You are well-known as the ‘Dean of Digital Currency’ from your previous work in the legal blockchain space. Now you are focused on banking. What is the reason for your shift in focus?

Marco Santori: I don’t think it’s much of a shift. It’s the natural evolution. Banks were created for people who wanted to hand over trust elements of their financial lives. They still serve that role today. As crypto grows to include more and more of the mainstream and starts to touch more and more of our everyday lives, we are going to see that phenomenon occur in crypto as well. There are going to be people who come into the tent who want the kind of services that banks can provide. We want to service those people. We want to be good stewards of their trust. Thankfully the State of Wyoming has had a vision for that evolution and they have made this a reality for the crypto industry.

Brett: Can you explain the SPDI charter and what it now allows Kraken to do?

Santori: Kraken is not a money transmitter. We haven’t sought licenses in the U.S. This is an alternative path to that, speaking purely from the regulatory perspective. The SPDI charter will help us to satisfy those rules as we seek to bring more and more of the payments flow in-house.

Brett: There are a lot of firms in crypto and blockchain that get banking services, and of course there is the retail side too. Will this charter allow you to have business as well as retail customers?

Santori: Once the charter is issued, we expect to be able to not only service companies and provide services to larger organizations, but also to realize greater efficiencies in our ability to service the retail clients that have built this company. This is about the “man on the street” that trusts us to be our crypto exchange.

Brett:What would you say to those who may ‘scoff’ at being in a rural state such as Wyoming with a charter that handles sophisticated emerging technology?

Santori: I haven’t heard a lot of people ‘scoff’ to be honest. Most of the thoughtful lawyers that I work with, have their interest at minimum piqued by what is happening there. Now it is purely an empirical matter. It’s not a question of doubt or projections. This is real and it’s happening. Kraken is the first substantiation of that. We are well past the ‘wait and see’ time in my mind.

Brett: Congrats on being the first What was the process like?

Santori: To put it simply, it was tough. The Wyoming regulators are experts in crypto and that’s rare. I think that it has paid dividends for the regulators, us and the people of Wyoming. The regulators have developed a thoughtful set of rules that doesn’t regulate for regulation sake. They have cast aside the mere optical flourishes that are included in regulation and focused on what matters - consumer protection and preventing crime. Kraken has always had a compliance program that is second to none in the industry. Wyoming developed independently their own set of rules for us to follow. It considers the nature of digital assets that we support on open, permissionless ledgers, and incorporates the ability to track and trace transactions on ledgers as well as the protections around the inescapability as fluid bearer assets.

Brett: Regarding the idea of this being a first U.S. bank in the state of Wyoming. As a former FDIC regulator, Does the SPDI charter allow you to get the same results as a money transmitter licenses?

Santori: The SPDI charter alone does not, rather it’s the foundation for doing that. And there is still a lot of work to be done on the regulatory stage to ensure that local state regulators are comfortable with the supervision that Wyoming can provide. It is not a silver bullet, it is a strong foundation. This is not an event, it is a process and an important milestone in the process. It signals the inescapable direction in which this is all headed.

Brett: With the recent letter from the OCC on being able to custody of crypto, is this somewhat of a reaction to a failure at the federal level as to what to do in this space.

Santori: It is a good question, but I don’t think that’s the case. I think this is a much less political process than the pundits might want it to be. This is the culmination of a process that started years ago, frankly not even in Wyoming. This is a process that started in Delaware with the Delaware Blockchain Initiative. This is a push to get done in Wyoming what Delaware was unwilling to do. We are seeing the fruits of that today.

Brett: So, if I want an LLC as a small business owner, the first state that comes to mind is Delaware. For credit card banking, it is South Dakota. For crypto, is the correct ‘branding’ of the state and immediate thought Wyoming, or is that too simplistic?

Santori: Having worked now extensively with regulators and legislators in the state, I think entrepreneurs would be crazy to not consider Wyoming as a home for its business. A lot of jurisdictions, not only in the U.S. but in the world, have talked about fostered innovation, have talked about attracting entrepreneurship, and have talked about all the benefits that . Empirically, only one place has put that talk to action and as we said in our opening statement in the recent hearing before the Wyoming Banking Board. The state of Wyoming is the only state to develop the path toward compliance and toward a commercially viable system. Kraken is just the first company to walk that path.

Brett:Will your personnel be moving there, such as Jesse Powell, the CEO of Kraken, and yourself?

Santori: We are opening an office in Wyoming and moving some of our personnel to Wyoming but also we are recruiting locally in Wyoming. There is a tremendous pipeline of talent that we hope to tap into. The CEO of the bank has moved into and live in Wyoming. I am going to spend a lot more time there and Jesse will as well.

Brett: Who is the CEO of the bank?

Santori: David Kinitsky and he’s not just some young bachelor. He moved his whole family up there as well. It’s a real commitment.

Forbes: From what I hear you saying, Kraken will benefit not just on a national level, but on an international level. Will this help you with your worldwide operations?

Santori: We think that it will. To be clear, the bank will have its own obligations if it chooses to branch into other countries. For now, the bank will solely be servicing U.S. persons. The bank can also play a role in the flow of international funds which is a critical element of this. It can process transactions in currencies and fund flows from all around the world. That’s important for Kraken as a global company with customers all over the world.

Forbes:With Tyler Lindholm (R-Sundance) as a leading legislator that surprisingly lost in his recent re-election bid to a conservative Republican, what’s your take on that and educating the people of Wyoming on this industry?

Santori: We were disappointed to see Wyoming lose such a voice for blockchain technologies, there is no question. In fairness, he’s not lost, he’s still there. And I expect that we will continue to hear from him and all benefit from that voice in politics and in business. In terms of the people of Wyoming, I don’t think they need education. I think there is plenty they can teach us. In terms of the conversation, you haven’t heard Kraken shouting from the rooftops how far along we are in the process. What you see now is us showing it and not telling it and I think that speaks for itself.

Forbes: Do you have any final comments?

Santori: I think it is difficult to state the over-importance of this milestone. I think this is a specific development in the course of crypto affairs. This represents the development of an efficient, transparent, responsible nexus between the world of traditional finance and the developing crypto ecosystem. I think this is a historical time and the kind of thing that students of finance and history will look back on as a watershed moment for the development of financial assets.


Kraken: Myths, Legends, and History

The Kraken, the great beast of the seas, is a popular creature modernly seen often in comic books, games, television shows, and movies. and from these sources is quickly gathered the general idea of the beast as a gigantic squid that attacks ships, and is powerful enough to sink them if it so desires. This is how the creature was portrayed by Jules Verne in his book 20,000 Leagues Beneath the Sea, as well as in Disney's movie version of the story and again the beast was portrayed as such in Disney's more recent Pirates of the Carribbean movies.

Of course, scientists are quick to point out that while the legends of the kraken are likely based on true sightings of giant squids, the squids in question were never large enough to sink a ship, nor likely to want to do so. the tremendous size and aggressiveness of the legendary kraken is pure exageration and fantasy attached to a relatively rare, but very real, aquatic wonder.

And the funniest part of all of this is how mistaken both ideas are.

The kraken, as originally reported over three hundred years ago, was not described as a squid, nor was it likely to have been based on one and it was never accused of being aggressive. What's more, the trail from the first reports of the kraken in scientific literature of the mid-1700's up to the modern concept of the creature as a violent giant squid demonstrates exactly how little facts matter compared to convenient assumptions.

The Original Kraken

The kraken first came to the attention of the world in 1751 due to the publication of the Natural History of Norway, written by Erik Pontoppidan [ 1698-1764 CE ], bishop of Bergen, who collected stories of the beast from the fishermen who claimed to encounter it. Also called the kraxen or krabben, the creature never fully came into view due to its immense size and its mostly underwater existence. but the details that Pontoppidan collected did lead him to beleive that similar creatures had been unknowingly reported by other authors many times in the past. Though Pontoppidan was unable to specify the actual size and appearance of the kraken, he still felt that the information he had gathered was enough to entice future investigators to discover more about the animal.

During hot summer days the kraken often rose to the surface of the seas near Norway it never came to the surface during rough seas or weather. The beast was usually encountered anywhere offshore that was at least a depth of 80 fathoms. If a depth check by fishermen came back as less than thirty, it was assumed a kraken was under the boat. Krakens attracted fish there were always big schools of fish – especially cod or ling – in the water above the submerged beast. So if a kraken was located, sometimes up to 20 boats would gather above it to catch the plentiful fish.

If the depth of the kraken showed that it was rising to the surface, the fishermen had to row away until they detected a normal depth for the area. Soon after, the back of the creature would rise to the surface, looking like a number of small islands surrounded by sea-weed, with stranded fish flopping about until they reached water again. Next, a number of “horns” rose up, as tall as the masts of middle-sized ships, thicker at the base than the top. Pontoppidan felt these were the arms of the creature, used to move it around. He stated the visible area of the creature’s back was estimated to be a mile and a half in circumference, but also stated that he chose to present the smallest estimation the fishermen gave him, “for greater certainty.” After a short time, the kraken slowly re-submerged, creating swells, eddies, and a whirlpool that sucked everything too close down with it.

The kraken spent several months eating, followed by several months excreting. This excretion colored and thickened the water, but was highly attractive to fish. Great schools of them gathered above the kraken to eat this waste… and then were eaten by the kraken.

Pontoppidan stated that the kraken could probably grab a boat and drag it under if it chose to however, it was never actually known to be aggressive. All human deaths and injuries it caused were accidental, and generally due to fishermen not reacting fast enough to the kraken’s presence. The bishop tells that “a few years ago near Fridrichstad,” a small boat with two fishermen came too near a rising kraken, and could not get away in time. One of the creature’s ‘horns’ crushed the front of the boat, and the fishermen clung to their floating wreck until they got back to shore.

Pontoppidan also relates an account from the Reverend Friis, Minister of Nordland. In 1680 CE, what was assumed to be a young kraken swam into the waters between the rocks and the cliffs in the parish of Alstahaug. In moving about, it tangled itself up in the rocks and caught its ‘horns’ among trees near the water unable to escape, the beast eventually died. Its body took a long time to rot away, and the stench made the area intolerable. unfortunately, no one took measurements or drew a picture of the body.

And so concludes Pontoppidan’s report on the kraken, to which he added his beliefs that the beast is a form of polype or starfish, and that it is possibly responsible for reports of vanishing islands worldwide.

Kraken Confusions

Over the next fifty years, the popular idea of what the kraken was altered due to confusion with other legendary beasts, and difficulty in locating Pontoppidan’s book. The kraken tale was mixed up with previous stories of living islands and with tales of sea-serpents of any description any such report was treated as evidence of the kraken.

For example, a well-known tale of an Arabic sailor named Sinbad told how he was one of several sailors who disembarked on a strange flat green island in the middle of the ocean to stretch his legs. and was the only person to survive when the 'island' sank beneath the waves and swam away. Another well-known tale told of Saint Brendan of Ireland being on a boat that moored at a hilley little island for a night when, in the morning, the sailors built a fire to cook a meal, the island shuddered and began to sink and swim away. There was no loss of life, and much to everyone's surprise Brendan had known it was a fish the whole time. God had told him it would be safe for their ship to moor on it for the night (Brendan chose to sleep on the ship, by the way). From these tales of the 'island fish,' came new stories that told how sailors had landed and set up camp on a kraken, only realizing their error when they started a campfire. usually with a great loss of life in the whirlpool created as the kraken sank beneath the waves.

In 1801, a Frenchman named Pierre Denys de Montfort [ 1766–1820 CE ] published Histoire naturelle, générale et particuliere des Mollusques, a book meant in part to prove the existence of giant octopuses and to help his book sell, he claimed that the kraken was actually a type of giant octopus. He stated that the reported “horns” were tentacles, and the fish-attracting excrement was octopus ink. He also included an illustration of a giant octopus pulling a boat under the water, and claimed that Pontoppidan stated that krakens did this ( which he didn't state and they don’t do ).

Montfort's Octopus [ Larger version here ]

Montfort’s book was laughed at by serious minded people but by 1819 naturalists and scientists began to find decent evidence for the existence of the giant squid, and started to believe Denys de Montfort’s claims regarding the kraken. except they suspected it was a squid instead of an octopus.

This new scientific opinion of the matter was assisted by the rarity of Pontoppidan's book. By 1860 Pontoppidan's original book had become so hard to find that what people knew about his claims for the kraken came from other people's accounts. and these were often wrong. Among other strange ideas, it was claimed that Pontoppidan had stated the kraken was so large when surfaced "that a whole regiment of soldiers might with ease maneuver on the back of the floating monster," which was big enough a fish story that no one believed it. But, simply put, Pontoppidan never said this unfortunately, no one seems to have known that. This false claim of the kraken's size, among other false claims attributed to Pontoppidan after the fact, were then and are still generally pointed to when supporters of the idea of the kraken as a giant squid need to discredit any details from Pontoppidan's original report.

One more publication assisted the public misconception of the kraken as being a giant squid, though inadvertently. Published in 1870, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, by well-known author of the fantastic Jules Verne [ 1828-1905 CE ], proved to be an enormously popular book. In this story of a sub-marine adventure, Verne makes many mentions of the kraken and Pontoppidan, and also has a scene in which the lead ship is attacked by a giant squid. which, combined with the then stated opinion of many learned men about the kraken and the giant squid being the same creature to start with, largely cemented the new public idea of this being correct.

Despite all of the smoke and mirrors to make the “kraken is a giant squid” argument work, in the end there is one main difficulty: Pontoppidan knew the difference between a squid and a kraken -- he described species of both, along with starfish, in the same chapter of his book -- so Pontoppidan was not confused about what he was reporting. He had not seen the beast, but from the descriptions he gathered the bishop was very clear that he felt the kraken was, in fact, a gigantic starfish and, if it ever existed to start with, perhaps it is still in the oceans near Norway waiting to be truly re-discovered.


Kraken ss-370 - History

On September 27, 2016, it was announced that the ride would go under an extensive refurbishment and reopen in 2017 with virtual reality and was renamed to Kraken Unleashed. On June 16, 2017, Kraken Unleashed officially opened to the public. In early 2018, the virtual reality headsets were removed from the attraction’s ride vehicles and the ride went back to being Kraken due to technical difficulties. They returned to the ride in June 2018. Later that summer, the virtual reality was permanently removed due to slow dispatches and excessive wait times.

Three days later, while chasing an eight-ship convoy, Kraken's torpedoes sank an oiler and a coastal steamer and her guns inflicted heavy damage on one of the Japanese submarine chasers. Then Kraken proudly sailed into Fremantle, Australia, 3 July 1945, ending her most successful patrol.

On June 1, 2000, Kraken officially opened to the public. At the time of opening Kraken held the record for the tallest and longest roller coaster in the state of Florida. It held this record until 2006 when Disney's Animal Kingdom opened the 4424 ft Expedition Everest.

In 1999, Six Flags Great Adventure spent $42 million on new attractions including a prototype Floorless Coaster by Bolliger & Mabillard, Medusa (later Bizarro). The immediate popularity of the ride led SeaWorld Orlando and three other amusement parks to announce plans to install Floorless Coasters in 2000 aside from the announcement of Kraken on May 6, 1999, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom announced Medusa, Geauga Lake announced Dominator, and Six Flags Fiesta Texas announced Superman: Krypton Coaster. Kraken was announced as costing approximately $18–20 million. Krakens announcement more than one year out from its opening was an attempt by the park to drive international attendance.

The Kraken attacks anyone marked with the Black Spot, which is delivered to its victims by Flying Dutchman crewmen and can only be removed by its captain, Davy Jones. According to the writers' commentary on the Dead Man's Chest DVD, those marked with the Black Spot are taken by the Kraken to Davy Jones' Locker, where they must experience their worst fears for eternity.

Kraken steamed by way of Chicago to Lockport, Ill., 27 September 1944, and was carried in a floating drydock down the Mississippi River arriving at Algiers, La., 4 October. Ten days later Kraken cleared Algiers, transited the Panama Canal and underwent intensive training in the Gulf of Panama. She sailed for Hawaii 4 November and arrived Pearl Harbor 21 November.

Kraken was launched 30 April 1944, by the Manitowoc Shipbuilding Co., Manitowoc, Wisc. sponsored by Mrs. John Z. Anderson, wife of Congressman Anderson of California and commissioned 8 September 1944, Commander Thomas H. Henry in command.

Kraken sailed on her fourth and last patrol 29 July. While seeking the enemy in the Java Sea, her patrol was cut short when she received news of Japan's capitulation. Sailing for Subic Bay, she arrived 21 August.

Davy Jones, ruler of the seas, summons the Kraken to destroy vessels. On-board his ghostly ship, the Flying Dutchman, is a massive capstan with a carved Kraken on the top, the so-called Kraken Hammer. To call the Kraken, the crew rotate the capstan clockwise, lifting it to its highest point. It then slams down, blasting shockwaves through the ocean, thus summoning the Kraken. One shockwave usually does the job unless the Kraken is farther away. The Kraken Hammer is seen again in At World's End, still aboard the Dutchman though broken and unusable, it is still able to rotate, as shown during Sparrow and Jones' duel. The lines chanted by Davy Jones as the Kraken is summoned ("Let no joyful voice be heard! Let no man look up at the sky with hope! And let this day be cursed by we who ready to wake. the Kraken!") are similar to the lines from the Book of Job: "Lo, let that night be solitary, let no joyful voice come therin. Let them curse it that curse the day, who are ready to raise up their mourning."

Kraken cleared Subic Bay 31 August 1945, touched at Pearl Harbor, and arrived at San Francisco 22 September. On 14 October she rendezvoused with Admiral William Halsey's 3rd Fleet and formed a part of honor escort for Halsey, as he passed under the Golden Gate Bridge in his flagship,. Ten days later Kraken visited Longview, Wash., for the first postwar Navy Day celebrations and returned to San Francisco 31 October where she was placed out of commission 4 May 1946 in the Pacific Reserve Fleet.

Kraken departed Pearl Harbor 12 December 1944, for her first war patrol, touched at Saipan 23 December, set course for Indochina next morning. There she maintained lifeguard duty in support of 3rd Fleet carrier strikes. While on station she rescued a pilot from rough seas and evaded a strafing enemy plane by diving. Finding no targets, Kraken set course for Fremantle, Australia, arriving there 14 February 1945.

Departing on her third war patrol on 19 May 1945, Kraken set course for the Gulf of Siam. After searching in vain for enemy targets, she shifted to the Java Sea where on 19 June she bombarded Merak and riddled a coaster and a small ship with 5 in and 40 mm projectiles. She saw the coaster sink and she left the small ship ablaze before clearing the harbor.

Kraken departed on her second war patrol 15 March and maintained lifeguard duty in the South China Sea supporting aircraft carrier strikes against Singapore and Saigon. She returned to Subic Bay, P.I., 26 April.

Kraken was the University of Tennessee’s petascale computing environment funded by the NSF and fully integrated with XSEDE formerly TeraGrid XD. Kraken was a 1.17-petaflop Cray XT5 system containing 18,816 compute sockets and more than 147 terabytes of memory. In November 2009, it was named the third fastest computer in the world. In its final configuration, the XT5 system delivered in excess of 700 million CPU hours per year. The system was designed specifically for sustained application performance, scalability, reliability and incorporated key elements of the Cray Cascade system. Kraken provided the user community a sustained, high-productivity petascale resource for science and engineering applications. The NSF computer system was co-located with the National Center for Computational Sciences, home of Titan, and other major user facilities at the ORNL campus.

A large, barnacle-like aquatic creature, up to 3 miles long, appearing in Artemis Fowl and the Time Paradox, of which only seven specimens remain. They are often mistaken for islands, like the Kraken of myth, however they lack tentacles and are docile. Kraken shed their shell usually only once in their lifetime, but when they do, under the shell is a huge amount of methane which is set ablaze, creating an explosion, and propelling the shell off. Although it is thought that Kraken shed their shells only once during their lives, one, known as 'Shelly' by the Kraken Watch and the oldest of the seven specimens still alive, blasts its shell off a second time while Holly is checking a red-lining sensor on it. The Fairy people initially believe only 6 remain alive, although Artemis personally discovers a seventh that avoided Foaly's detection, which was attracted to the coast of Ireland by the magical residue of

The New York Attorney General's Office began a fact finding investigation in April 2018 on the measures taken by cryptocurrency exchanges to protect their customers and fight market manipulation and money laundering. The New York State attorney general warned that the Kraken cryptocurrency exchange might be breaking the law. "Customers should be aware that the platforms that refused to participate in the OAG's Initiative (Binance, Gate.io, Huobi, and Kraken) may not disclose all order types offered to certain traders, some of which could preference those traders at the expense of others, and that the trading performance of other customers on those venues could be negatively affected as a result." Powell claimed that the investigation was hostile and bad for business, and refused to comply with the inquiry. He claimed that market manipulation "doesn't matter to most crypto traders," and stated that "scams are rampant" among cryptocurrency exchanges.

In February of 2019, Kraken added cryptocurrency futures trading.

Commander Kraken first appeared in Sub-Mariner #27 (July 1970), and was created by Roy Thomas and Sal Buscema. The character was later killed by the Scourge of the Underworld in Captain America #319 (July 1986).

In October 2013, Kraken announced that it had discovered major flaws in the Namecoin protocol and would not list the cryptocurrency until they were removed. Former Kraken COO Michael Gronager, during the security analysis for onboarding the new cryptocurrencies, spotted a major vulnerability in the domain registration system and a bug that left .bit domain names susceptible to attacks and reassignment. Although the flaws were soon fixed and Namecoin was listed on the Kraken exchange, it was delisted two years later after a decline in its trading volumes.


Espanjan laivasto

Espanjan laivasto otti aluksen palvelukseen 25. lokakuuta 1959 nimellä Almirante García de los Reyes (E1) Ώ] . Natoon liittymisen jälkeen laivasto otti 1961 käyttöön uuden runkonumeroinnin, jolloin aluksen runkonumeroksi tuli S31. 1960-luvulla alus oli laivaston ainoa modernisukellusvene. Sukellusvenelaivaston muut alukset olivat saksalainen tyypin VIIC (U-573) ja kolme vanhaa D-luokan venettä.

Alus matkasi Pearl Harborista Panaman kanavan kautta Cartagenaan, jonne se saapui tammikuun lopulla 1960. Espanja osti aluksen 16. syyskuuta 1974 ja Yhdysvaltain laivasto poisti sen alusluettelosta 1. marraskuuta 1974. Oston yhteydessä alus poistettiin palveluksesta ja siitä piti tulla vara-osa, mutta alus kunnostettiin ja palautettiin palvelukseen 1. syyskuuta 1975 korvaamaan Narciso Monturiol (S33) ex-USS Picuda (SS-382), jossa tapahtui vakava konerikko edellisenä keväänä. Alus poistettiin palveluksesta huhtikuussa 1981 ja romutettiin.
