In this 1943 photo, the Robalo is ready to be moved to the river's edge in preparation for launching. The staff at the Manitowoc shipyard had determined that the submarines would be built in sections, indoors, out of the severe Wisconsin winter with each submarine divided into sixteen sections plus the coning tower. They determined the weight of each section and constructed a mobile, self-propelled section carrier, capable of transporting a 60-ton section to transport each section from the Erection Shop to the building ways.[1]
