I wish I could attempt to transit the Bosporus submerged. That's as shallow as they get. I always wanted to try that since I read Patrick Robinson's "Nimitz Class". :up:

I am working on an idea for a scenario with narrowish straits and a channel through ice. :lol:
Anyone know such area/s ?
Canadians and Ruskies - help.

Aarrrrgh... there's a lake near here where the seaweed is so thick it's like sailin' through clay. I've clogged many a jet-ski intake in that thar lake. 'Tis no place for submarines though... Arrrgh... :arrgh!:

Straits of Malacca are very narrow, still home to lots of pirate activity, and once you make the transit successfully, has some nice liberty ports for your crew in Thailand!
