Salina Man, Experts Refurbishing Submarine

KSAL StaffNovember 21, 2016

Visitors to central Kansas might be surprised to find several people working to refurbish a Cold War submarine that can go 8,000 feet deep in the ocean. They’re involved in helping 29-year-old Salina resident Scott Waters achieve his dream of exploring the deep sea.

Waters bought a Pisces VI sub from an international company last December and hauled it home from Wisconsin. He and a team of 10 experts plan to pull it apart and put it back together using digital technology.

After that, he’ll offer the modern submersible for scientific research and to the film industry.

Waters, the head of his family’s hardware store chain, thinks the submarine will be ready to launch in two years.
