D.O.W.B., used to search for Alvin

To the Rescue

Deep Ocean Work Boat (DOWB), launched from R/V Lulu, was used to search for Alvin after it  sank in late 1968 south of Nantucket when a cable on Alvin's launch platform failed. No one was seriously injured, and the sub was recovered 11 months later.
