Basically, the vessel was not safe to sail," said Coast Guard officer Angelia Rorison.

"It had no lights, no flares. It was not registered," she said.

"Instead of safety violations, this could have turned into a search and rescue."

I don't think there are any Ubi members dumb enough to try a stunt like this. I think we are pretty much NORMAL people here. BUT!!!, If there is a possibility, they need to be banned immediately, to avoid embarrassment to us all http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

That was really stupid http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Not stupid to build a submarine, but stupid to build one which looks like a gigantic seamine and move it towards the Queen Mary 2. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Especially in NEW YORK http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Seeing those pictures, that sub looks rather bizarre in design.

I'm surprised the police didn't shoot him thinking he was a member of Al Qaeda or something.

At first glance it does look a bit like a floating mine, but I think the sub crew had more reason to worry... "Pedal faster!!" http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

I wonder how long it takes to crash dive?

Well I'm all in favour of anything odd being kept clear of Queen Mary II - I'm going to the UK in it next April!
