Two submarines

Two interesting sites about submarines. (not this one)
The first one is a large builder of Tourist and Research machines. The second one is a geek working out of his garage. U.S. Submarines -- gorgeous work and priced accordingly. Check out this puppy - the Seattle:
Here are the technical specs I don't see any reference to MSRP on this one... On the other side of the spectrum, here is Doug Jackson's website: www.submarineboat.com -- How to Build Your Own Submarine ...without repeating my mistakes. He is building from scratch a wet-sub with decent performance both submerged and on the surface. You can not only dive (you will need SCUBA gear) but you can get to the dive location at 20 KTS. Trailerable and looks like it is easy to maintain. He also gives some great tips for welding and casting -- like the website says: ...without repeating my mistakes. Cool stuff!
