Carbide Powered Submarine ......................

    This project was proposed by Ray over a year ago. This is much modified from the original design and is actually the third and final version. The first two were to correct engineering mistakes and to test alternative valving and ballast.
    This is definately a calm water boat. Don't expect any great performance from it. The primative jet propulsion has some real limitations. But it will submerge and resurface as it should. I have the rudder fixed to perform a rather large circle. This will return it reasonably close to me before I have to rescue it. This could be improved on but I removed the external ballast and produced a slightly more streamlined version.
    But see for yourself ...........................

    Well that it. If you have any questions about how this was done just email me
