Dolphin home built submarine

This is awesome! I want one... as long as it's safe!

To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Re: Dolphin home built submarine

Are they using a compressed air supply for the motor?

Re: Dolphin home built submarine

Yeah, it says it has a turbine that compresses the air when they are surfaced and then when submerged it consumes that for up to 30 seconds before it needs replenishing.
