20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

I had referenced the book in this post about a newly discovered Submarine that may have influenced Jules Verne's designs for the Nautilus. I loved the book and loved the Disney movie when it came out. Our littlest Goat is named Esmeralda after the sea lion onboard the Nautilus in the Disney movie. I was digging around a bit and ran into this site. Appropriately for a submarine site, it is amazingly deep and vast. I present for your enjoyment: Vulcania Submarine

This site not only chronicles Pat Regan's efforts at building the first working scale Nautilus Submarine but Pat also links to a lot of Verne, Disney and general underwater memorabilia as well as other people's working submarine projects. Befitting the original Captain Nemo, Pat now lives on a volcanic island and continues his work there. This stuff is for real folks... Posted by DaveH at June 8, 2005 10:40 PM
