About 40 people gathered Tuesday to watch a crane lower a 42-foot submarine into Atascadero Lake.
The Atascadero City Council last month approved businessman Lloyd Reeves’ plan to place the craft in the lake.
Reeves had initially proposed bringing the submarine — a quarter-scale replica of a World War II vessel powered by an electric motor — to the North County this spring.
It is expected to be open to the public when a new motor arrives.
