Hyper-boat (or sub)
« on: July 18, 2008, 07:09:51 AM »
I saw this today _ http://hyper-sub.com/home.php it's a home built hyper-boat (sub) that can go about 45 mph, and dive while moving.  But it can dive to 1200 feet.  Well beyond any fleet boat.  It's pretty cool looking. Check the videos out too.    :D

I'd like to take a ride in one of these, as I'm not a submariner and this may be the closest I ever get to a "dive".

They even offer a snorkel upgrade.
