Clock is ticking to save WWII-era Navy submarine
The Post and Courier of Charleston reports that an agreement with the Clamagore Veterans Association requires the group to hire an expert to assess the condition of the sub.
If there’s no immediate danger of sinking, Patriots Point will give the group two years to raise $3 million to repair the World War II-era sub. The group has about $30,000 now.
If the group cannot raise the money, Patriots Point will sink the vessel off the coast as artificial fishing reef.
The treasurer of the veteran’s group. George Bass, is optimistic the money can be raised.
