Nikon AF 180mm f/2.8 ED IF Review & Sample Images by Ken Rockwell
Note : Night photo, I used Manual focus, don't AF. No flash and no tripod.
This doesn't look like any submarine I've ever seen. It does look like a personnel rescue craft for use in evacuating from an oil platform.There was a time when living in a barge on a smelly dingy London canal into which where people threw their garbage indicated that your were some sort of drop out. Fast forward to billions of investment and gentrification 40 years later with the smell most definitely having disappeared, this is now a very hipster thing to do and here's the current trend; submarines. Not sure I would go underwater in this thing, doesn't look very secure does it.

Thanks Chris, good to know, especially as they're put about by the locals as being subs. I'll have to see if I can identify a 'real' one up there.This doesn't look like any submarine I've ever seen. It does look like a personnel rescue craft for use in evacuating from an oil platform.
They are made of fiberglass and can hold a large number of people. Not the most comfortable things in their original condition.
While it might go underwater for a moment after it's launched, it will pop to the surface. That's one of the reasons for the color, so it can be seen by rescue aircraft.
A friend of mine worked for a company that built them.
