Not to mention a threat to US Navy and civilian vessels alike, should this technology fall into the wrong hands. We need a common sense government who would stop wasteful and economically divisive endeavors such as these.
The USN and RN pretty much tracked every Russian sub while at sea without the Russians knowing they were up their baffles. These leisure subs won't exactly be hard to detect. If anything they'd probably attract a bit too much attention.
A friend of mine works for a company specialized in furniture for super yachts, the kind where a chair or table costs six figure amounts.
Those filthy, stinking rich guys don't even appreciate it.
They once spent a year looking for a rare tree of the right size with the perfect structure to create a really exclusive table that the customer requested. So when they finally found the tree and made it into a $100,000+ table they got a phone call... This guy's new girlfriend (a 30-40 year younger, dispensable, gold digger) didn't like it very much, so if they could come and paint the table white!
And then there was this guy who wanted his entire engine room covered in gold. THE FRIGGIN ENGINE ROOM!!!
Yep, agree.. got diesel engines but can stay submerged for "weeks".. don't think so.

I came into this game for the action, the excitement. Go anywhere, travel light, get in, get out, wherever there's trouble, a man alone. Now they got the whole country sectioned off, you can't make a move without a form.
