Actually, MadHungarian.....the design flaw would be in ships that are not designed to surface after submerging :)

True that!! I have heard rumors that post WWII the Electric Boat Company experimented with a screen-door design seized from the now defunct Deutches Zinken Und Schwimmen Unterseeboot Fabriken Werks during the war, but it was supposedly a flawed design and the prototype never finished her maiden voyage ...... :P

Yes, it was an utter failure on their part. We recovered the $$$ spent when we sold the patent to the French Navy.
