Torpedo Tubes, in Torpedo Room.  The Right one is open end to end. 

This could never happen in real use, since torpedo tube interlocks prevented such to block flooding from sea into the Uboat.

 

Batteries in view.

 Battery well contained many of these, to power the Uboat underwater and to power all electrical equipment on board while underwater.
