There is another photo in the gallery regarding this sub. It hit an under seamount south of Guam at 525ft.

Cant hack this photo as being the repair to the one which hit the seamount. That waterline mark is carried right through down aft. If it was a new section it would be all new paint. I think this pic is of a normal drydocking of another sub.

be interesting to find out the background to this photo..

OK ... having read the remarks on the other pic and a much closer look at this pic one can see that this is the nose of the other sub, which explains the waterline marks .. and of course the cut was nearly 1/3rd of the way aft, behind the hump in the unrepaired photo .... .... which is where the scaffold is ....Why was the other sub scrapped???

It was probably scrapped because the Canadian Navy has enough subs that won't float.
