Hunley Raising the submarine H. She was then shipped by rail on August 12, to Charleston, South Carolina.

Extra ballast was added through the use of iron weights bolted to the underside of the hull. In the event the submarine needed additional buoyancy to rise in an emergency, the iron weight could be removed by unscrewing the heads of the bolts from inside the vessel. It was equipped with two watertight hatches, one forward and one aft, atop two short conning towers equipped with small portholes and slender, triangular cutwaters. The military seized the vessel from its private builders and owners shortly after its arrival in Charleston, turning it over to the Confederate Army.
Hunley then called Fish Boat sank on August 29 , , for the first time during a training exercise, killing five members of her crew. She sank again on October 15 , , killing all eight of her second crew, including inventor Horace Hunley himself, who was aboard at the time, even though he was not enlisted in the Confederate armed forces.
Both times Hunley was raised and returned to service. Hunley was originally intended to attack by means of a floating explosive charge with a contact fuse a torpedo in Civil War terminology towed behind it at the end of a long rope. Hunley would approach an enemy vessel, dive under it, and surface beyond. As it continued to move away from the target, the torpedo would be pulled against the side of the target and explode.
The floating explosive charge was replaced with a spar torpedo, a copper cylinder containing 41kg of explosives attached to a 7m-long wooden spar. On the night of February 17 , , the Hunley made her first and only attack against a live target. The vessel was the USS Housatonic. Housatonic , a ton steam-powered sloop-of-war with 12 large cannons, was stationed at the entrance to Charleston, South Carolina harbor.
