    SAN DIEGO - Free to a good home: vintage submarine, recently restored. One prior owner.
    ADVERTISEMENT

    That's not quite how the notice is worded, but that's the message from the Navy, which is looking for someone to take over the USS Dolphin, one of the oldest submarines in its fleet.

    The Dolphin, a one-of-a-kind research vessel, was commissioned in 1968. In a notice published in this week's Federal Register, the Navy said it will accept offers from government agencies, nonprofit groups or other institutions willing to make the submarine into a museum.

    The Navy hopes to keep the vessel in its home port of San Diego. Any new owner will also be required to keep the 165-foot sub in good condition.

    "The donee will be required to maintain the vessel as a static display in a condition that is satisfactory to the Secretary of the Navy," the notice states.

    Navy spokeswoman Pat Dolan said the Navy started its vessel donation program in 1945, when it gave the battleship Texas, a dreadnought that fought in both World Wars, to a state historic site near Houston. At least 47 other boats have been donated through the program, Dolan said.

    Navy spokesman Lt. John Gay said the Dolphin was decommissioned Jan. 15 because the type of acoustic and engineering research it did could be performed by other vessels. Even so, the Navy spent about $60 million repairing the sub after it caught fire in May 2002.

    Despite the recent investment in the Dolphin, Gay said, getting rid of the boat would save money in the long term, as operating costs for the aging vessel were more than $18 million a year.

    The Dolphin was the last diesel-electric submarine in the U.S. fleet, though the Navy still has at least one other on lease from Sweden, Gay said.

    Aspiring submarine owners have until March to submit offers.

    Maintenance is expensive but we can offset that cost by being smugglers.

    :ugh: it's a fuckin submarine... how the hell would that happen?

    Last time I checked, the USCG and DEA don't have too many attack subs on hand to try to find the damn thing.

    Yeah but we'll need cash to get it up and operating untill we can turn a profit with it, I'm sure filling the gas tank up will cost us many thousands of dollars alone.

    That wasn't a real submarine though that was some nigerian engineered shit. A real sub would be a more difficult to detect, and we'd have our own sonar to look out for them.

    i still think we would get caught. id be down for trying though, and then launch torpedos at them if we do get caught :naughty: or we could carry the goatse guy onboard and have him stuff all the drugs up his ass.
