Not that I could ever afford one, but I wonder if I could talk them into making mine look like a giant metalic fish if i could?  I could ride it along the coast and have people talking of sea monsters for weeks on end! Smiley

At $19.7 million for the large sub, I don't think anyone will be spotting an immersible squid roving the coastline for a while yet... Smiley

I used to go on family camping trips when I was young, to the Bruce Penninsula in Ontario Canada.  At the very tip of the penninsula is a tiny little harbor town called Tobermory. The area is extremely popular with divers, due to the large number of shipwrecks in the area.  It's home to Fathom Five, a provincial park that's located entirely underwater,  and even has it's own decompression chamber for when things go badly...

Anyway, for several summers there was a guy there who would charter 1/2 hour excursions in his 2-man submarine.  My dad and I always talked about doing it, but somehow my mom and sister always talked us out of it.  This was back in the 1980's, and I seriously doubt that he's still around.  File this one under the list of top 5 regrets in life...
