Awesome job, Ray.  I don't think I would want to be submerged in that contraption, but it's an interesting idea.

We all live in a wooden submarine! A wooden submarine! A wooden submarine! (Apologies to The Beatles.)

As I built this thing I always thought it as a wooden football.

Thanks Vince. There was a couple times I was not sure I would finish it. Some parts needed were not included and I had to figure out how best to make them. Lots of metal rod that needed to be cut and bent to shape. I drilled a hole for each nail that had to be installed. Plus instructions were not that good. I'm glad it's done.

Yea it was a lot of work but that thing looks so cool just to display it I'll bet you would get tons of complements I never even saw the kit but I'd love to have one!

Thanks Ken. Kind of hard to believe they were building this in 1721.
