November 9, 2006: New homemade submarine from Russia



In the beginning of the year this German homemade submarine was noticed, and now this Russian one which is smaller has shown up.



According to this site, it doesn't go very fast, only 4 knots. Says he goes from St. Petersburg to Helsinki, Finland and back without stopping.
This site with the same photos is in Russian if our translators care to have a go, if there is any more information.



But it would be pretty lonely wouldn't it?



Maybe that's the point.

10 posts and nobody has mentioned the "Get A Life" episode where Chris builds the submarine in his shower? For shame, all of you.

Quote:
The submarine was spotted Friday 103 miles (166 kilometers) off the coast near Cabo Blanco National Park on the Nicoya peninsula.

"This is the first time in the country's history that a craft with these characteristics has been caught near the national coasts," Berrocal said in a statement.

U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents, FBI and Colombian officials aided Costa Rican authorities in the operation, Berrocal said.

Two Colombians, a Guatemalan and a Sri Lankan were arrested and taken to the United States, since they were captured in international waters, Berrocal said.
Not that it matters in reality, but I wonder where Costa Rica and the US Coast Guard, get the authority to snatch this submarine in international waters?

They must have had extensions on those pipes to be six feet under the surface.

Maybe they have extensions?

How do they measure the depth, anyway? From the mid-point of the vessel, from the bottom, from the top?

Damifino.

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (AP) -- Tipped off by three plastic pipes mysteriously skimming the ocean's surface, authorities seized a homemade submarine packed with 3 tons of cocaine off Costa Rica's Pacific coast.

Four men traveled inside the 50-foot wood and fiberglass craft, breathing through the pipes. The craft sailed along at about 7 mph, just 6 feet beneath the surface, Security Minister Fernando Berrocal said Sunday.

They could have said a hellofalotmore. You know how much power it takes to move something that size underwater? I would bet at least a 100hp possibly 300. How was this accomplished?

I also agree with the 6 foot comment. How would raise and lower those snorkels without myriad <bad> leaks...

A 2 inch hole about three feet below the surface lets in 136 gallons a minute. I bet that sucker would go permanently negative buoyant<sink> in about 5 seconds.

The mysteries abound.
