Housesub

Postby Dennis The Bus Dweller » Wed Jul 09, 2008 4:00 pm

OK Kid's

I was down at one of the local bout yards today and what did I find? Was it a really sweet housebus? How about great old school housetruck? Oh no. I found a housesub :D It's about 60 feet long and about 16 or 18 feet around. I talked with the guy that owns it. He bought it for $750.000.00 down in Texas then he put $250.00.00 in to it to make it sea worthy enough to motor up here to Long Island N.Y. He says he plans to put another $1,500,000.00 in to it so him him and his family ( husband,wife and 6 years old sun ) could play with it under the water. Theres not much room inside but the thing is cool. It's much nicer then my sub :(
Peace along the way

Cool, but uh, doesn't it take a whole crew of sweaty submariners to run one of those things? Can it still fire torpedoes?

The owner said that him and a buddy motored it from Texas on there own. It never had torpedoes. It was a research vessel. But it only a little guy so if you know how to drive one of these thing he said a crew of 2 or 3 is all you need to have a go at it. Here’s a better shot of it from the side. What fun it would it be to have :D
