Skip,I have seen this picture before. It was passed to me and the one that passed it forgot the site. Can you tell me where it came from.
It looks that it in a foreign port. Tried to make out the flag on the sailboat it is moored next to.
But you would never hit it with a flinch like that...lol
Drug Smugglers Go Underwater
December 4, 2006: Last month, the U.S. Coast Guard spotted and seized a "submarine" off the coast of Costa Rica. They found the boat contained a crew of four, and 3.5 tons of cocaine. That cargo was worth about $140 million dollars (wholesale price, when sold to dealers). Certainly worth the several hundred thousand dollars or so it cost to build the "submarine." Actually, it wasn't a submarine, but a "semi-submersible". The fiberglass boat, powered by a diesel engine, had a small "conning tower" above the water, providing the crew, and engine, with fresh air, and permitting the crew to navigate the boat. A boat of this type is the only practical kind of "submarine" for drug smuggling. A real submarine would be much more difficult to build, although you can buy commercial subs for a million dollars or so.
There are a lot of wars going on that most of you are not aware of....
