Need Help Identifying German Navy Uniform

Need Help Identifying German Navy Uniform

I am looking for help on obtaining as much information as I can about the Navy Uniform the man in this photo is wearing. From my own research, I am thinking it look to be a German Kriegsmarine uniform - however I want to be sure. I cannot make out what it says on the front of the cap. I am also interested in any information that can be obtained as far as rank/location, etc. from the uniform. Thank you so much in advance!

Not really familiar with the Kriegsmarine, but he appears to be a Matrosenhauptgefreiter.

I would suggest posting a much higher resolution photo or photos in a forum such as:
