The boat is currently in dry dock in the process of being recycled.  

The RICHARD B. RUSSELL (SSN-687) is closest to pier (left side photo) - photos from Don Shelton.  SRP for
the 687 is scheduled for Oct 2001 (this year)- a few short months away!  If only this group of Cold War boats
could talk about the missions they deployed on- but they won't.
