Jan 2009 -- Some of you may have heard that the recently recovered bell of the USS GRUNION was aboard the USS COD. John has assured me that the CUBERA's bell is still the "working" bell, and that the GRUNION's bell was aboard only during the October 2008 special memorial for relatives of the GRUNION's lost crew. Sailors, rest your oars.

These Bell photos were taken aboard the USS COD memorial afloat on Lake Erie
in Cleveland, OH, and provided courtesy of John Fakan.

John, on behalf of CUBERA's crew, thanks again very, very much.
