"...designed and built by Graham Hawkes, chief of Hawkes Ocean Technologies and is the first of its kind. Marketing manager Karen Hawkes, said: "The Nymph is an entirely new class of vehicle for us -- think of a sleek convertible under water. It is different from our other submersibles because it was specifically designed to dive to scuba depths in tropical waters."This is especially exciting to me since I first met Hawkes last year during Erika Wagner's MIT Ocean X-Prize exploration!
