Thanks for sharing, Drew. I've been following the updates on both the Clamagore and the Ling with a combination of dread and interest... As much as I would hate to see them go from museum boats to diving attractions, this course of action seems to be the one that is inevitable and preferable to mere scrapping...

I only hope that they give the other museum boats a chance to strip out needed parts before they sink it.

It is sad. I believe we'll never have another full size museum submarine, only partial displays.

I heard that Batfish was making a list but, I have my doubts about the staff actually doing anything with it.....  Lips Sealed
