This summer take a sub, hit a pub

A personal submarine, finally


It may be hard to imagine if you're anywhere near Chicago right now, but summer will arrive before you know it. And what would the season be, pray tell, without one's own personal submarine?

The Dutch company U-BoatWorx is here to help with its "C-Quester," which MobileWhack says can dive up to 50 meters and cruise at 4 knots. You can even get a custom paint job. (How do you pimp a submarine?)

The underwater vehicles come in two sizes, at 9 and 11 feet, with the latter seating two--perfect for Valentine's Day, starting at a mere $127,000. For that much money, we'd just as soon get a bionic dolphin and maybe even save a few thousand bucks. Besides, we always wanted to grow fins.
