    This was a permissioned visit with MedwayBoy and DoverLee

    Foxtrot B-39 (U 475) was built in 1967, and used specifically for training foreign submariners - Libyan, Cuban and Indian.

    She was in active service with the Russian Baltic Fleet until April 1, 1994, having spent 27 years in active service.The vessel arrived in London from the naval base in Riga, Latvia, in July 1994 under the command of its Captain Vitalij Burda who bid official farewell to his second home for the last 23 years. She was at Long's Wharf, Thames Barrier untill 1998 and then moved to Folkestone. After a spell in Folkestone she was towed to Medway where she currently resides.

    Due to corrosion on one side her balast tanks have partially filled one side (causing her to list to one side), talking to the guys responsible for her rennovation, they could happily right her by partially flooding the opposite tanks, however for now they're trying to keep as much of the sub out of water as possible.

    Paint is currently being stripped from the entire hull and repair works undertaken ready to be re-painted.
