#1, Holy hell in a hand basket, that's beautiful.
#2...forgive my ignorance, maritime subjects are not my specialty. What are..."Limber Holes"... I can only bring to mind pictures of Gymnasts in provocative positions.

"Provocative positions"....now THAT's funny!!


"Limber holes" are the openings around the hull of a submarine that allow water to flow around the pressure hull,and allow accumulated gasses to
escape.

They assist the boat in submerging,and eliminate tell-tale bubbles from betraying the boat's position while submerged.
