If I recall correctly there used to be submarine races held in Long Beach,  Southern California. 

There was a smallish (1/4 mile?) oval course, the subs were little one person units, there were grandstands and everything.  

If I'm correct,  that was in the mid to late '70s....I'm going to look around some, see what I can see...

Yes, that is the context I remember it being used in. I remember the first time I heard the expression and being totally confused as to the meaning, as, well, you could't "see" submarines, racing or not (remember, I moved here from a non-English speaking country in my teens and translated back to Dutch).

You guys obviously never watched "Happy Days"... and my mom confirmed the slang... 


I never watched 'Happy Days' and I never thought I'd ever come across anything that was 'before my time.' :D
