Default Submarine Transit, Welland Canal

The decommissioned submarine, the HMCS Ojibwa (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMCS_Ojibwa_%28S72%29), was moved through the Welland Canal today on its way to Port Burwell on Lake Erie where it will be part of the Elgin Military Museum (http://www.projectojibwa.ca/).

Very interesting, we visited a sub in a Chicago museum last summer, it should make a neat display

I was aboard the USS Drum when visiting the USS Alabama museum in Mobile, Alabama and there isn't a great deal of space inside submarines. The HMCS Ojibwa had a crew of 62 men and 6 officers. It's hard to believe they all fit inside.

Thanks for sharing.

We have a submarine nearby that is a museum. We've visited it many times over the years for school projects. Tight quarters isn't even the word for it. I can't imagine being in that under water for months on end.

What I find fascinating is to see one out of water. I haven't yet had the chance to visit one in a museum yet, and so find your pictures fascinating.

A fish out of water as they say. Nice shots.
