I know it might sound slightly odd but has anyone tried them for waterproofing  eg electrics etc?

I believe it has been done. But for most purposes, what you need in a submarine is a rigid container, preferably cylindrical to keep your electrickery tickety-boo.

Have a word with U33, as some time back he had a Wright up in the AMS mag In Depth, it did put a smile on my face.

We always used these items when we ran multi boats back in the 70 & 80s, the fun started when someone started using black shadows, least I think that was them.  Nemesis

I think U-33 used them back in the 80's as a form of air bag to inflate as part of a ballast system.
