USS COD in need of tugboat in order to be available for tours in Erie

Local News

The effort to make the USS COD available for tours in Erie continues with a big hurdle still in the way.

According to the group that operates the COD as a national historic landmark, they cannot find the tugboat that they would need.

The World War II submarine has been at Donjon Shipbuilding since June and is undergoing a major overhaul.

IT was hoped that the COD could stay in Erie for a few days after the work is finished for public tours allowing people to get a look inside.

Last month, the USS COD Memorial was looking for a corporate sponsor and dockspace.

The tugboat is necessary to get the sub from Donjon to a dock.
