Also, the ship appears to be in decent shape unlike the submarines you folks bought from the Brits. I say raise it and put it back in service! :mrgreen:

I wonder if the HMS Upholder crews cooked and et each other, too. Ths Royal Navy has had a ongoing issue with cannibalism.

A great find. And a stroke of luck too. Apparently, one of the crew remembered seeing something interesting in the waters of Terror Bay some years ago and after taking a slight detour on their course, they found the wreck.
