If the USS Connecticut is written off, it could be used for parts or be given to Australia for in-port training. Later, it could even be repaired (helping them to learn how to do it) there for a lot le$$ to make it a fully training sub or deployable.
Alternatively, the USS San Francisco now used for training could go there instead while the USS Connecticut stays home & used for training. Time will tell!
The USN has 2 others of the class to pick up the slack & 1-2 older SSNs could be kept in commission longer, if need be.
