The Carter heading out to Alpha sea trials, passing the New London ledge light, which lies where the Thames River meets Long Island Sound.  The extreme length of the Carter is evident in this photo.  The Carter is the longest US attack submarine in service, at over 450 ft. in length, exceeded only by the Ohio class SSBNs
