Stuck in the Muck

Two views of REQUIN, sitting in the middle of the Hillsborough River in 1987. Originally supposed to go to a new location up-river, REQUIN was forced to move and sit in the middle of the Hillsborough River. Shortly thereafter, REQUIN was again moved closer to shore, where she remained until moved to the shipyard in 1990.
