They’re built underneath dense trees to hide their production, specialized systems are involved such as scuttle valves to rapidly sink the whole thing if caught to keep the boat’s design a secret. The exhaust is also cooled by a special system so the boat won’t show up on infrared scanning.

That would be so cool!

The Durante class replaced both the DeBurgurac and Hope classes as the transport of choice for cocaine smugglers around 2002. It can be distinguised from the Funyon class marijuana smuggling submarine by its far thinner, more formal and businesslike appearance combined with an absence of conspicuously garish paint.

Are we there yet? How much longer? Are we there yet? I gotta go. Are we there yet? It smells funny in here. Can I sit in the front seat? Are we there yet? How much farther?
