18-year-old from New Jersey built a fully functional one-man submarine. The high school junior built the underwater vessel from the lightweight plastic used in drainage pipes.
The nine-foot-long, 1,300-pound submarine can dive to depths of 30 feet. It took him six months and $2,000 to build his vessel mostly from salvaged materials: the sub's
motor came from a fishing boat, while the Plexiglas dome was made from skylights.
He also made sure to include several safety features inside the underwater craft,
including pumps and a breathing hose, which would supply the person inside the
vessel with air in case the Nautilus floods.
