It’s not a dead ship, whale, or turtle.  I didn’t get any closer.  It’s a first sighting in the boro for me.

Here’s another shot.  And I don’t think the McAllister has it in tow.  Maybe the sub is escorting the tug?

Well . . . maybe not.  That was an attempt at humor.  UPDATE:  Thanks to bowsprite . . . the sub is Royal Dutch Navy sub Walrus. More on Walrus, including good foto, on the 9/4/08 shipoftheday post.   And Saturday a second sub Salvatore Todaro -Italian- arrives.  Emerging for the sunshine?  Below, it’s New Jersey Responder.  Sub responding, perhaps?
