The USS Batfish was nearly lost downstream in the Arkansas River Flook of 2019 and was barely held by two aging hausers.  Then as the river settled down it was determined the boat was sitting over a sinkhole.
The plan now is to float the Batfish, on purpose this time and set her down on a massive concrete pad and cradle to make sure she never floats off again. It won't be cheap, but Lezama says it's worth it to honor the 3,000 Americans who have lost their lives on submarines in war.
