    The Russian sub, located in Providence, Rhode Island, sank yesterday afternoon. Reports indicate that she was taking on water during the recent Nor'easter and had finally slipped below the waves.

    Here is a link to the web site. Info on the sub's history can be found there as well.

    From the BostonHerald.com

    PROVIDENCE, R.I. - An old Soviet submarine now used as a floating museum sank and was completely submerged in the Providence River after being battered by a powerful nor’easter earlier this week.
    All that can be seen of K-77 now is 2 feet of its periscope. Workers said it could be months before it’s open again. Launched in 1965, K-77 was a diesel-powered nuclear missile sub. It was used in the 1990s as a restaurant in Finland, and as a set for the movie “K-19: The Widowmaker.”

    I hadn't realized that it sank....

    ...Until I read the article about raising her!!! A few years back I got to go on a tour of the submarine. Very cool. Somewhere around here I have a souvenir deck plan poster...

    I am imaging a crew of 6 year olds standing around a 100+ foot submarine.

    "Wow mommy, it's bigger than the one at home!"
