For now, the Cod is sitting in the DonJon Shipbuilding Company dry dock. Later Tuesday, it will be filled in preparation for the 312-foot submarine’s return home.
The tugboat should arrive in Erie around 7 a.m. From there, the Cod will be towed across the 105 miles of water between the two Lake Erie ports, which is expected to take about 12 hours.
Cleveland will celebrate the Cod’s return on Sunday, Aug. 22 at 1 p.m. The homecoming will be held at the Cod’s dock grounds at 1201 N. Marginal Rd. on Cleveland’s North Coast Harbor.
