    i am building one not nothing pretty like all of ya'll's but i thinbk it will do what i want.
    i will have pic soon. im going to use it to searching for sunken treasure.
    not pirate chest but rather for the stuff people lose like at the beach and swimming hole
    where it is 8 to 10 feet deep.
    i am installing a metal detector and a vacuum pump. i came up with this idea when i saw people
    searching the beach and said there would be more in the water then on shore so here we go......

    p.s. im making it rc controled not hard wired. if you have any ideas let me know

    If it's r/c and not hard wired, how are you going to see whats on the sea floor?

            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 the question posted was not about Kazzer's imagination as much as it was what have YOU thought out. You did not mention this in your description and for the record Kazzer is very smart and imaginative. Anyways, sounds like you thought it out, what can we help you with?

                  Go for it! Sounds like a real plan! Work it out - drawings - photos etc. and let's see some video of it working.


                  I can hardly wait!

They get riped off by the surf but surfer wear them to look cool i guess who knows its mine now :) :) :)
