It sounds to me like Brody has some pretty serious issues going on and Freddy sounds pretty desperate.
But inventor Rob Innes begs to differ. I am, after all, the nervous and not entirely willing passenger in an extremely fast, fibreglass shark. Scroll down to see growly write a letter [caption] [caption] It looks like a great white shark, complete with dorsal fin, gaping jaws and rows of dagger-sharp teeth.
Unlike the real thing, it also has a hp engine, which powers it to 50mph above water, and 20mph below it. Rob, 37, is a watersports fanatic. And along with friend Dan Piazza, 52, he has turned his hobby into a thriving business. The pair built their first submersible 12 years ago and today their company, Innespace, has a year-long waiting list of rich adrenaline-junkies eager to buy one of their custom-built playthings.
Seabreacher X is a snug two-seater. So Rob and I squeeze in and leave Dan on the shore, clutching a contact radio. We roll 90 degrees to the right, then the left. Unlike a boat where you have left and right, fast and slow, this is more like an aircraft.
You have to think about pitch, roll and yaw.
But just when I think the worst is over, Rob yells: After gaining a bit of speed, Rob pulls back on the controls and we burst out of the water into the open air.
I experience a rush even if it is partly with fear as we shoot out of the water like a cork popping out of a champagne bottle. The downside comes when we hit the surface with a jarring thud. Rob and Dan are even working on a model which will be able to perform turns in mid-air and back flips.
The sight of the seabreacher emerging from the waves, foam crashing around its fins, is truly impressive.
Each machine takes a team of seven people three months to build. So just how long does it take to master the controls of an artificial shark? While it is more difficult to drive than a conventional pleasure cruiser, Rob insists he can teach someone the basics in just three to four hours.
Rob is even hoping to drive the Seabreacher alongside some real sharks later this year, off the coast of South Africa or San Diego.
Sharks can be pretty shy. A hammerhead, to be precise. For more information, visit www. Submarine that looks like a great white, soars 12ft into the air then dives under waves.Explore our collection of new building sets including LEGO Harry Potter and more.
You need a handy set of tools for doing a text-based, qualitative discourse analysis? This post offers ten work steps for conducting such an analysis. After the suggestion in one of this site’s comments stating that it required more faith to be an atheist than a theist, because the non-existence of a deity can never be proven, I thought it would be fun to see if we can logically disprove the existence of “God”.
