Where did they send it to? Did it go back to Russia or is it touring another port? That would have been nice to check it out.

It's in San Diego, now... http://www.sdmaritime.com/contentpage.asp?ContentID=177

Looks like it will be there for a long time.

I think the Coast Guard had safety issues with it when it was in Seattle. One of the hosts showed me how rusted it was!

Rusty pressure hull? Not good. Most vulnerable location would be leaky torpedo tube seals. Batfish only recently fixed those issues.

The last time I was there, I was under the impression it was for safety reasons, but I'm not sure. (The Coast Guard had issues with it)

It originally left Canada for financial reasons. (not making any money, US was a better market)

The Akulas are the most of the old Red Fleet.

Actually, the movement of the sub from Seattle to San Diego was strickly a business deal. The owner, a private individual, decided he was better off financially to sell the museum than to continue to operate it as a museum. The San Diego Maritime Museum bought it outright.

The US Coast Guard issues you speak of had to do with her voyage down the coast, not her operation as a museum.

San Diego Maritime is also the future home of USS DOLPHIN (AGSS-555).
