    Nice shots Don!

    I had heard rumors last year that after the NR-1 was fully decommissioned, she's reside next to the Nautilus at the Sub Force Museum in Groton. Here's a couple shots of her in 2007, heading back to the Sub Base in Groton

    Thanks for the info and the pictures you shot are nice, I wonder what she looked like.
    In the year she's been at the shipyard I haven't yet seen her, not sure if she is docked on the back of the island or maybe they've been working on her inside this building.
    Have you heard anymore if she is coming back to Groton.
