Russia’s smallest submarine

Here’s a homemade sub from Russia, check out all the pics! – “This Russian man from St. Petersburg got his personal submarine. He built it himself and it is the smallest submarine in Russia, officially registered as a boat by Russian boat registry and has got it’s own personal name and number. He can make an underwater trip from St. Petersburg to Helsinki, Finland and back without stops, and he can go as fast as four knots…” [via] – Link.

    That is just about the coolest watercraft I have seen in a long time. So, are there any makers out there that have built one of these? Have pictures? Please share.
