    I would hate to see beaches polluted with these things - no way.

    I'd be open to it. Raises question about how it would be titled though?

    I'd go to school underwater.

    All my grades were below "C" level anyway.

    I can sea myself living there one day. If I can grab myself a watertight deal. Maybe get my my feet wet with property as a start. I'd be up to my neck with debt though. But gotta drown out any fear that it will lose value down then track. After all, don't wanna be up s#*t creek with no paddle. So I'll do my best to buy UMV and ride the cycle wave. Life's a beach.

    Nice idea, but I can see a couple of problems. It's essentially a boat with a transparent hull of a really bad design (by boat standards).

    1. Nobody would want to stay in one during bad weather, not even a moderate wind. A few waves and you'll bounce off the walls.
    2. Mainenance & cleaning will be a serious ongoing expense.

    The designer admits he's neither a diver nor sailor. He should probably try these before sinking serious money into this project.
