USS COD Documentary
Our friends at World of Warships, Naval Legends have produced a fantastic two-part documentary
on the USS Cod. It's a great overall look at Cod and her role in WWII submarine combat. Enjoy!
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.
