The SKIPJACK looks great! No pictures of it submerged?
If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

I think Crazy Ivan has pictures of it sitting 9' down on the bottom.
It was not intentional. :oops: :oops:
Some dummy had his MPD failsafe set wrong so when the boat went below the RFB (Radio Frequency Barrier)
it kept on going right to the bottom. :mrgreen:
She sat there for a few minutes until the SRS (Submarine Retrieval Specialist) could attempt a rescue.
I guess it was a good thing as I found out the pressure hull was bone dry inside.
For the first time in the water the a Skipjack ran great. :D BD.

Dave,
It looks great! 9' pressure test is what that was and a practice of sub retrieval, good man for keeping everyone on their toes.
Peace,
Tom

Here are a couple of pics. BD's sub wasn't the only one to need a rescue. My delfin ended up on the bottom and needed rescue too. :cry: But it will be repaired and improved. Greg
