Personal submarines

I think the trouble is telling them what the project is about. People think you are mad. Once I started telling people it was for “an oil tank”, they started to take me seriously. Guernsey Submarine documents the building of a homemade submersible. You can also watch another K-350 in action, read about how to design them, or buy plans, if you're truly inspired.
