Fred, you don't mean that little Nikko sub, do you? I know Vic had that...the one I'm on about is the one that Bob Read designed, a totally different boat altogether.

Hi Dick


No the AMS had one and Vic was going to refit it out, the last time that it was seen was when it went into the back of his car.
