During July 2008, a Russian dive team “Iskra” was searching for L-19. At the request of Wahoo Project Group, they diverted from their normal routes to scan two sites which were thought to be probable locations for USS Wahoo SS-238. The first site was a freighter, the second site was a submarine recorded on their slide scan sonar. Divers then dove the the wreck on July 28-29, 2006 and Vladimir Kartashev took photos. On October 31, 2006 the US Navy confirmed the Wahoo had been found in a news release.
