UPCOMING EVENTS for 2015:
Saturday, July 11, 2015 at 2 p.m Join us for the 70th anniversary celebration of Cod's rescue of the crew of the Dutch Submarine O19.
Our reenactment of the world's only international sub-to-sub rescue will be our major event of the year and a wonderful way to honor the friendship between
America and the Netherlands!
USS Cod will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Sept. 30. Come aboard and travel back in time to a place
where survival depended upon silence, deep water, and well aimed torpedoes.
USS Cod is where Cleveland honors its veterans!
COD's location is N. Marginal Rd., between E. 9th St., and Burke Lakefront Airport.

If you you do not have the free QuickTime player it is available from Apple.
We recently acquired two GM Cleveland Model 248 engines
that had originally been used aboard another WW-II submarine, USS Stingray SS-186. The two engines will
be used for parts for the restoration of Cod's engines. These very large V-16,
1,600 HP diesel engines were originally built right here in Cleveland, Ohio -- the
last in 1943. Each engine, with its attached DC electrical generator, weighs about 43,000 pounds (21,000 kG). Here
is a photo showing one of these engines loaded aboard a transporter.
Cod's Mark IV Torpedo Data Computer has been restored
