LOL, ah you beat me to it!! Now if they were trying to convince us that those 2 floaties are blue water capable, then I would have to dispute it. But you know, I've seen worse sailing between the islands..

A concrete submarine? ...somebody has a death wish. Even the submarines at Disneyland are made out of metal.

I'm certain that if people from the future found this that they would assume it was some sort concrete of tomb.
