Dud subs cause stress


From CBC.

The repairs to Chicoutimi are expected to cost at least $20 million.

Right now, just one of Canada's four submarines is able to go to sea. The others are being brought up to Canadian navy standards.

HMCS Windsor is patrolling the Atlantic coast. Last week, Windsor had what the navy calls an "electrical incident" that caused the crew to go to emergency stations.

As for Chicoutimi, the repairs are expected to take another two years to complete.

Perhpaas we could sink these things to form new reefs and get some sort of environmental credit or something. It would be safer than having people actually try to sail them.
