did you know that after ww2 the captured u boats were pressure tested by the british by lowering them over the front of specially adapted ships on very large diameter cables. they were slowly lowered untill they imploded. they were then winched back up to see where weak spots were.this took days to do. i read a book many years ago about this. i remember the authors name as comander fell but not his first name. stan
