    This is the famous 12' Gato, built over twenty five years ago by my old friend John Robinson...and I'm glad to report that both the sub and John are still going strong!

    The internal fitout is awesome...check the video out..

    12' Gato... Empty 12 foot gato

    HI Richard
    Thanks for your help trying to log in,just gave the her in doors a ear bashing enough said about that, now to the good stuff the 12ft gato is not from 32nd parallel and it is not on steroides but i think it should be me that needs steroides to move it about, in the next few days will sort out video footage of when central tv came out and filmed it and when all the radio amateurs where there changed black and white camera in sub to colour now, low frequency radio link works now in side sub, need to start to think about fitting onscreen display for compass heading and so on.
