One thing SH3 does not model is the food supply onboard the uboat. For the longer range boats this could become an issue.

I've been able to take my XXI to the carribean and back (from Bergen). It took ~2 months round trip, including the actual strike against a port (the one reccommended in the Community Manual for finding tankers). The strike itself only lasted about an hour and forty minutes (3 tankers killed, no torps left, and at least two tankers left).

I left base Sept 4, 1944 and returned Oct 30/31. Im just wondering what the longest patrol times are for each type of uboat that's playable in SH3...I have this feeling my crew should have starved to death...

I was wondering about that too. Maybe they resupplied by meeting up with a friendly ships at night.

Is there a 'Fisherman' qualification?

that would be cool , shoot sharks , like one of Luths guys did , except make sure the cook doesnt mutilate it to the point where you have to throw it over board.

Yeah, food consumption is one of the many things SH3 didn't model accurately.
