I think there are black smokers of volcanic
origin in that area and when I was a SONAR
tech aboard the USS Bainbridge back in
the mid-late 1970s I saw a contact
on the TBR (Time Bearing Recorder) that
was weak and continuous and was not able
to identify that seemed to be coming from that
area of the Pacific Ocean. Today it would
not surprise me if that contact had been
one of those smoker thingys really putting
on a show. I pointed the ship right at
the contact to try and get closer and louder
but the navagational people got upset with me
and I turned control back to them so we could
all go home. A steady black smoker volcanic thingy
would explain the kind of noise I saw but was
unable to hear. It was off central Oregon about
280 290 degrees or so as we were headed for
the Straights of Juan De Fuca If I remember correctly.
The Navagational logs of the ship should have
recorded the position and course change
of the ship and the ship was pointed by myself
directly at the noise source for a few minutes.
It was far enough away that the bearing
did not change very much as we traveled on
and simply lost interest in the target.
But also i heard that a Soviet Nuclear Sub
liked to do a slow three knot circle in that same area.
100 miles or so off the Coast of Oregon.

:-( So you tell me what i saw ???
