Snorkel Sub

I went for a long walk today on the beach. I got my submarine plans in the mail today — I might do that as a quick (well, not that quick) project in the new space to get un-rusty at building things. The Aquasub is a “snorkel sub”, meaning that it sits just a little under the water, with pontoons that stay on the surface… so it’s not really a submarine, but still quite fun. There’s actually a company in Austria that builds a bigger snorkel sub that looks like it has potential as a tour vessel. Not quite as cool as a DIY K-350 sub, but harder to get killed in. The subs I really like though are the “flying” ones by Graham Hawkes, who even has a design for an underwater plane that can go down to the bottom of the Mariana Trench






  1. Shannon, did you recently move or something? I thought you were living in that apartment in the city? Where is this space you are referring to?

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
