Good thing they turned the toilet, but after being on a flipping ship, I think I would have done that first. Really a good idea first time I'd heard of it, and it was invented in the 50's?!!

study of bending the sound in water, and other studies; plus an estimated 3atm. range, and less than half an'hour for a flip. it looks like antisub warfare, a lil'bit outdated by algorithms implemented during late decade. it's the corespondent of meteo containers found in the cities, so it's place could be 2guard inhabited coastlines that show strong heat transfer within that 3atm. range. obsolete today when cargo and bulk reach those depths already. I'd go for a partly inhabitted 5atm. telescopic body, and no propulsion. max
