Thats really really really cool, Mike. I love the thought you've put into the little things, and those structural supports are to die for!

I like the streamers on the vents... even with all the high techery it's nice to have a visual reminder that air is still being pumped into the cabin.

He just has to make sure he installs proper toilets, otherwise it can be the death of you...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_submarine_U-1206

(read the bit about the sinking)

Quote:
U-1206 was one of the late war boats fitted with the new deepwater high-pressure toilets which allowed them to be used while running at depth. Flushing these toilets was extremely complicated and special technicians were trained to operate them.

On April 14, 1945, 8 miles off Peterhead, Scotland, while cruising at a depth of 200 feet, misuse of the new head caused large amounts of water to flood the boat. According to the Commander's official report, while in the engine room helping to repair one of the diesel engines, he was informed that a malfunction involving the toilet caused a leak in the forward section. The leak flooded the submarine's batteries (located beneath the toilet) causing them to release chlorine gas, leaving him with no alternative than to surface. Once surfaced, U-1206 was discovered and bombed by British patrols, forcing Schlitt to scuttle the submarine. One man died in the attack, three men drowned in the heavy seas after abandoning the vessel and 46 were captured.[2] Schlitt recorded the location as 57°24′N 01°37′W / 57.4°N 1.617°W / 57.4; -1.617 but the wreck could not be relocated.


What wikipedia leaves out is the report at the time that states the captain was the cause because he apparently had taken a massive crap so big he was too scared to ask the engineer whoose job it was to flush the toilet.
