Personal Submarine 1

Personal Submarine

Be the first person on your block to own a submarine. Yes, a submarine. But you won’t be patrolling the Persian Gulf in this sub. You might not even be able to maintain order in your backyard pool with this homemade submersible. All we really know is that it was a functioning submarine when it was built. Not even sure how old it is, but it’s probably 30 or 40 years, but it’s been sitting in the second owners yard as a “conversation piece” for the last 25 years. I can only imagine those conversations.

“Hey Bill, what the hell is this?”
“Oh, that’s my homemade submarine.”
“No shit, and you’re still alive?”

Anyway, regardless of condition and unknown origin, this is a pretty cool deal, and you can be sure no one else will have one. This one-man sub is located in Lancaster, California, and it’s listed on eBay with an opening bid of $200. Go Team Zissou.

It’s hard to accurately rate the condition of the interior on this submarine because we don’t have a lot of other homemade submarines to compare against. It needs some work, but come on, it’s a submarine.
