A heavy crane lowed Lloyd Reeves' 42-foot submarine into Atascadero Lake this morning while about 40 people watched. Once in the water, Reeves rowed out to the boat, hooked a line to the bow of the World War II replica and "towed" it toward the middle of the lake. A new motor for the sub is on its way, so until it is installed, the boat won't be available for rides for the public. In April the Atascadero City Council approved a trial run of Reeves' sub on the local lake.
