Submarine

Construction and development of one man, one atmosphere submarine.

The purpose of this web site is to document my progress to design, develop and build a one man submersible.  During the course of this endeavor I have had the help of a wide variety of people from many different areas of expertise, many of these sources will be found in the links I have provided.  The ultimate purpose of this sub is to be a means for exploration of the Channel Islands and eventually a ocean farming enterprise.
