    Favorite Boat Poll

    Okay!

    Name your Favorite boat and why.

    Doesn't necessarily have to be built and running, or one that can can even be built (Atragon anyone?)


    I'll start........

    U-91035 "PROTEUS"
    Fantastic Voyage

    I remember seeing FV as a kid, and was simply blown away by how this vessel looks. I guess I was sold on the whole premise too. After all the late '60's (despite the counter culture garbage) was a time of hope for what could be, at least in cinema.

    What drew me the most is in how I thought it would be so cool to operate her from the bubble. What a view that would be in real life. That is a real possibility for me now with regards to today's tech, at least from a video point of view.

    She is just one sleek looking craft that had power. They did a great job.

    It was many years later when I discovered her lineage and ties to another famous sub giving this message board its moniker.......Thank you Harper Goff.

    Yes, Bob did! Still one of my favorite buildups...

    That build featured LED lighting, opening and closing mouth (entry ramp), practical upper hatch, articulating front dive planes/fins, and (what I'm most proud of) fully functional iris hatch to the diving chamber inside the mouth...

    Mamas is an incredible talent. One of the finest model-builders I've had the pleasure of knowing. Here's some of his work on the Anderson STINGRAY:

    Johann Sauer built a half-size static study model -- was going to build a practical r/c submarine version, but I've hear nothing since (over ten years ago).
