USS Razorback (SS-394)
USS Razorback (SS-394) is a decommissioned Balao-class submarine of the United States Navy.
The USS Razorback is currently moored at the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum along the riverfront in North Little Rock. The submarine was purchased by the City of North Little Rock for $37,500 on March 25, 2004. Under the name TCG Muratreis (S-336) the submarine had served in that nation's navy for 31 years. The submarine was towed across the Mediterranean Sea, Atlantic Ocean, and Gulf of Mexico. The rechristened USS Razorback was then towed up the Mississippi and Arkansas rivers. At Montgomery Point Lock and Dam the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers requested that the submarine be floated between two barges to avoid scraping the river bottom. The submarine reached North Little Rock on August 29, 2005.
Public tours of the submarine began on May 15, 2005. Contrary to common wisdom the submarine was not named after the mascot of the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, but instead after the Razorback or Fin whale species (Balaenoptera physalus).
