Teen builds sub out of pig trough

A 14-year-old naval enthusiast has built a functioning submarine out of a pig trough.

Swiss teen Aaron Kreier from Eschlikon in the Thurgau canton took the shiny brass ENDO – Extreme Nautical Deep Office – for a successful 15-minute maiden voyage.

He tested it in the Arbon docks this week after being given special permission by harbour police.

The boy has been building the peddle-powered craft since he was 10 out of bits of old farm equipment and says he plans to use it to explore Lake Constance underwater.
