The Elgin Military Museum with have the submarine as the centrepiece of their new Naval Museum. While September seems a long way away, there is still a lot of work to be done before HMCS Obibwa is loaded onto a floating dry dock in Halifax to begin her final journey.

Before arriving at Port Burwell, the submarine will stop at Hamilton for transfer to a smaller barge and then resume her journey. The Naval Museum will be opening in the summer of 2013.
