The USS DOLPHIN was transferred to the hands of the San Diego Maritime Museum in a ceremony in Washington D.C.
Exerpt from the San Diego Tribune:
"...Ownership of the one-of-a-kind research vessel was transferred Thursday to the Maritime Museum of San Diego in a ceremony that participants likened to a wedding service, with Navy officials on one side and museum representatives on the other..." Here's the link to the article.
Big thanks to Rose Creasman and Steve Liewer for the heads up about the article.
The Dolphin should be on display by the end of the year. (we're hoping)
UPDATE: Forgot the news article on navy.mil. Sorry for the delay.

Apparently, the old submarines (nuclear) are being eaten alive by orange microbes. The Scots noticed on the HMS Revenge, that the sub, after being docked at Rosyth dockyard for the last 20 years, was kinda looking cock-eyed. Three holes in the outer shell were found by divers. So now, the Scots are trying to figure out how to get rid of their decommissioned submarines. Don't worry, the holes were plugged up immediately.

"The Navy has determined that the Maritime Museum of San Diego’s application for the permanent donation of ex-DOLPHIN (AGSS 555) has met the minimum requirements for donation as a museum and memorial. The Navy intends to donate and transfer ex-DOLPHIN to the Maritime Museum of San Diego by September 2008. "
