If I were a betting man (and sometimes I am), I'd bet that the submarine in the river would be the U-184, if it does turn out to be a german sub at
The reason for this is simple. The U-184 disappeared without a trace in November, 1942 during her first actual patrol. She left from Bergen, Norway.
Steamed across the Atlantic. Sank the SS Widestone due South of Greenland on the eastern edge of the Labrador sea. Then vanished without a trace.
If you read the article about the Weather Station, you will notice that the U-boat that planted it also departed from Bergen. It is very possible that
the U-184 was the first assigned with this task.
She could have possibly steamed her way to the Labrador coast, entered Lake Melville, started up the river and gotten snagged on the sandy bottom. The
crew may not have been able to free her or there could have been damage to the hull, resulting in the death of the crew.
