Divers in Connecticut found a sunken submarine Sunday that was built over 100 years ago and sank in the Long Island Sound.

The submarine was initially named the Simon Lake XV, according to NavSource Naval History.

It was built in the early 1900s by Simon Lake, a naval architect who wanted to win a competition for a U.S. Navy contract. The boat didn't win so he then tried renovating it for minesweeping, salvage and rescue tasks, renaming it the Defender, the Associated Press reported.

No one ever bought the vessel but it was still popular among some and was even visited by Amelia Earhart in 1929, said Richard Simon, the diver whose crew found the vessel.

  1. Thanks<, for all you do! I like your truthful coverage. Mad respect for educating everyone. BTC's price has been fluctuating lately, but I think we should be educating the newbies on what to do aside holding rather than discussing about the dip. The good thing about the space is that you can buy the dips and put them into active trades making profits from trades while confidently waiting for a pump in price because it is inevitable. Most people do not understand how the space works. Your advantage is understanding, Charts won't guarantee what an asset is going to do. Prices will go up or down. Nevertheless, the market has been so profitable despite price ups and down. I've always played safe implementing trades with insights and signals from a renowned trader, Jane Allison. I made 2.3 BTC from the recent crash in the market within a period of six weeks.

    1. I’ve been trading with her for a while now, their profits are secured and over a 100 percent return on investments

    2. I’m happy to see Mrs Jane Allison mentioned here, my spouse recommended her to me after investment $6500 and he has really helped us financially in times of covid -19 lockdown.
