Submarine Pampanito to get makeover

Postby U-5075 » Tue Jan 09, 2007 9:04 am

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco's most lethal tourist attraction will be out of action for a while.

Because the submarine Pampanito has been sitting in the waters of the San Francisco Bay for so long, it needs some work on its hull.

The World War Two-era submarine will be relocated later this month to a drydock in Alameda to have algae removed. Crews will also repair the rust and corrosion.

When they're done, they'll give the sub a new paint job.

The Pampanito patrolled the Pacific during World War Two, sinking six Japanese ships and damaging four others.

The boat will close to tourists January 20th. It's scheduled to be back at Fisherman's Wharf and open to tourists again around February Tenth
