Towing a Submarine up the Welland Canal -

On Sept 12 the former RCN submarine Olympus was taken from Hamilton to Port Colborne.  Looking at the stern of the Olympus as we approach the Stone Dock in Port Colborne.

Forward torpedo tubes.  The sub is destined for Port Maitland to be scrapped by International Marine Salvage of Port Colborne.
3-olymp-9-12-11-pb.jpg (95362 bytes)
 One of the two propeller shafts.  After being decommissioned this sub was used to train engineers.  To allow them to clutch in the shafts they are fitted with small pseudo props that have no thrust.  One of these can be seen at the end of the shaft.

Seahound was the stern tug on the tow.  Algoma Transfer and Anglian Lady can be seen in the background.

Anglian Lady on her way to Lock 8.  She had to change to tow mode across Lake Erie because of high winds.

Heddle Marine prepared the sub for transit.  They placed her on a barge, secured her with wires and, as seen here, welded the old girl to the deck of the barge to ensure it didn't go away.  The white line on the hull of the sub is the remnants of the zinc anodes.  These are used to reduce steel wastage on the hull.

 Another view of the stern with the various control surfaces.  The O-Class subs originally had stern torpedo tubes.  The RCN removed these and installed a towed sonar array for anti-submarine work.
9-mollie-9-12-11-pb.jpg (127491 bytes)
Mollie M I was the lead tug.  She is single prop but still very manoeuverable.
10-olymp-9-12-11-pb.jpg (57828 bytes)
The tow was left at the Stone Dock as the weather on Lake Erie was unfit for a transit.  Final view of the sub as we headed for Port Colborne to tie up.
