Colleagues:

The Ben Franklin was a research submersible that made a 30-day drift dive to explore the Gulf Stream. That expedition is believed to rank as the longest underwater research dive. In 1999 it was transferred to the Vancouver Maritime Museum and after refurbishment it was was placed on display in front of the Museum.
