To Brad: Sorry to hear about your loos. Have you considered using a metal detector? Sure there's some metal in the sub, and surely it's not deap into the settlement on the bottom.
I must say that the hairs rose on my back when reading about your loss during active mission, I'm currently boulding an Ohio sub, and what you describe is my **WORST** nightmare. They can take my cat, they can take my dog, but I surely don't wanna loose my sub once complete.
Yours Sincerely, Robert Holsting, Denmark/Europe
