Submarine Builder In Guernsey

This is an old article and the information contained within it may be out of date, not reflect my current views and/or contain broken links. If you feel this article is still valid and requires updating, you can use the contact form to let me know. However, I make no guarantee that it will get updated.

Sometimes whilst using Google you happen across a website that is completely off the subject you were looking for but that is absolutely fascinating. Today this happened to me. I’ve completely forgotten what I was originally looking for, but I found a website for someone living in Guernsey that is building a Personal Submarine (psub).

When I first started reading the site I thought it must have been in one of the Guernsey’s in the USA, but as I continued reading it became obvious that it is indeed the little island on which I live.

I still haven’t been able to work out who it is, he is only referred to as Jim or James, and I don’t recognise him from the pictures or where the pictures are taken. He seems to have links to Peter and John Frankland but that is all I can work out. If anyone knows who the builder is or where it is being built please can you let me know.

I’m definitely going to be keeping an eye on the site and I’m going to make sure I’m there when it has it’s maiden voyage. It’s not every day something like this happens on this tiny rock and I wouldn’t want to miss it for the world.
