    another cracking sub i can see why you like concept subs
    funny how the conning tower is so low you could not see much on that one
    hope she sails as good as she looks
    all the best geof

    From what I can gather, there were at least a couple of designs of concept boats with low or non-existant sails like this one, some had their sails mounted at the stern of the deck, some had huge great sails with lumps and bumps all over them, and at least one Russian design had a huge great radio mast mounted alongside the sail...how the hell it ever submerged I haven't a clue!
