COD is docked in Cleveland's North Coast Harbor, on North Marginal Rd., between E. 9th St., and Burke Lakefront Airport, about 1,000 feet east of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

We recently acquired two GM Cleveland Model 248 engines
that had originally been used aboard another WW-II submarine, USS Stingray SS-186. The two engines will
be used for parts for the restoration of Cod's engines. These very large V-16,
1,600 HP diesel engines were originally built right here in Cleveland, Ohio -- the
last in 1943. Each engine, with its attached DC electrical generator, weighs about 43,000 pounds (21,000 kG). Here
is a photo showing one of these engines loaded aboard a transporter.
