Beneath the clear waters of the Gulf Stream

"One of the submersibles was seen in April, 1973, by a Captain Dan Delmonico. He is a skilled seaman, and a thoughtful observer of the highest reputation. On two separate occasions, he saw unidentifiable objects, practically identical, beneath the clear waters of the Gulf Stream. Both sightings occurred in approximately the same area: about a third of the way from the Great Isaac Light, to the north of Bimini (Bahamas) and Miami, where the waters of the Gulf Stream are particularly deep. The two sightings took place about 4 p.m. and in calm water with excellent visibility.

A gray object, light, smooth and tapering

"In both cases an object, gray, light, smooth and tapering a little, like large cigars with rounded ends," he said, passed at great speed across his bows, underwater. Delmonico estimated the size of the machine to be between about 120 and 160 feet, and its speed about at least sixty to seventy knots. , When the captain first saw it moving under the water he thought that a collision was inevitable, as the object appeared to be surfacing just in front of him. Apparently becoming aware of the presence of the boat, the machine dived and disappeared, passing under the keel. No turbulence or wash appeared to accompany the apparition. No rudder, fin, or any other projection broke its smooth, polished surface, which contained no portholes.
