Unlike previous known "cocaine subs," which could dip only just below the surface, the illegal craft appears capable of diving as deep as 65 feet (20 meters).
Seized before its maiden voyage, the 98-foot-long (30-meter-long) fiberglass sub was big enough to hold six to ten tons of cocaine and six crew members. The remote swamp camp where it was built was outfitted for up to 50 workers, though only 1 was present at the time of the raid.
While I certainly don't condone the illegal smuggling of dangerous drugs across our borders (I'll leave that up to the government!) I have to applaud the ingenuity of the traffickers in this case.
Please enjoy a slide show of these awesome submarines. Also, if you're a punk/garage band looking for a name, and don't settle on Cocaine Submarine, then I'm sorry, you shouldn't be making music. Also, I demand a cut.
