    Default recovered German sub in Great Lakes

    Yes, the Germans did come down the St. Lawrence river and into the Great Lakes during WWII.
    Interesting find and re-float seen here.

    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Yes O Grey Inquisitive One. That's it. One look tells you that is a Russian sub anyway.

    It has one of those butterfly hatches that does not leak.

    What's sad is that there are 30 pages of comments actually debating the subject.

    The Ark is there too, in the cold-water deeps of Lake Superior.

    I thought the great, Nessie-like, lake monsters destroyed all the German subs along the route?

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    FWIW, there is a German sub at the bottom of Lake Michigan, sunk by artillery fire.

    German U-Boats did not have conning towers an/or decks configured like that in the pic during WW2. Just yeaterday saw a photo of the U-505 as part o a story on the Museum Of Science & Industry and it shows the typical sub of that period having a squared-off deck structure with an angular bow, overhanging conning tower decks, railings, gun emplacements, all sorts of protuberances here and there. The sub in the "fake news", if in fact a real sub, is some sort of smallish attack sub of a later generation, resembling the USN Albacore, but even smaller.

    The later German U Boats were very clean and streamlined.

    Never before saw a "clean" German U-boat. Guess we moved from the Nazi to the Soviet sub threat so fast they escaped notice.
