Yep, it happens.. and always has:

IIRC (it was a long time ago now), a few decades back a pleasure-cruiser motoring quietly across the Whitsunday Passage on a still dark night was hit by the periscope of a submarine on "exercises" on route to their base in Cairns. His boat went down in less than a minute, but the sub didn't know anything about it until they docked in Cairns and found bits of boat wrapped around the periscope.
