the vehicle remains attached to the mother ship by a secondary cable which provides power and communication.

Does that include air?

I thought that craft like this included mechanisms for shedding weights in order to achieve bouyancy for just such circumstances. If they don't, I bet they are wishing they had.

as the vehicle remains attached to the mother ship by a secondary cable which provides power and communication Can't it be pulled up those? Who needs a winch, just get some guys and a case of Fosters.

good news:

http://www.abc.net.au/news/newsitems/200612/s1804781.htm

Men rescued after 13 hours trapped in sub

Divers have rescued two men who were trapped in a submarine rescue vessel off the coast of Perth.

The Australian Submarine Rescue Vehicle (ASRV) was conducting a certification trial about 15 nautical miles west of Wanneroo when one of the cables attaching it to the mother ship snapped.

The vessel was lowered 130 metres to the sea floor, where the men remained for almost 13 hours.

The secondary cable attached to the mother ship was used to winch the vessel to just below the surface, where divers swam down and brought the men to the surface.

The two men are receiving medical treatment

OK, when did Australia get a Navy and why wasn't I informed?

Give those guys some empty beer kegs and it will go to their heads.
