Here is your suggested minimum daily requirment:


Image The Cutlass

ImageThe Requin. This boat was a museum ship docked in Tampa Florida. I went aboard her several times. It has since been sold and setup elsewhere.

Image Irex

Image In this drydock photo you can clearly see the huge sonar bulge below the bow. This bulge was installed on many Fleet snorkle boats as well as the Guppys. I put one on my 1/72 Revell Gato that I fashioned into a Fleet Snorkle along with a guppy type sail.

Image Pomodon.

Image Amberjack.

For your viewing pleasure.

Image

Image With the clear water you can easily see the bow of the boat through the water. Neat!

Image How many of us have ever seen whats under the skin of a sub, the reinforcing. Without it ,it would squash just like a empty beer can.

Image more under the skin stuff.

Image A little too much blow!

Image

Image

Image

Image How many people have ever had a sub surface right in front of you. Some people are just so blest!

Image What a magnificant ,in your face shot!

Image The bad guys have rockets too! :cry:
