A gaff rigged sub?

Must be one of the very first subs ever launched.

By the looks of the rig, it's at traditional dutch 'platbodem', meaning flat bottom. Boat is quite possibly made of steel - depth of water is probably not more than a couple of meters if that ( say 7 ft) and the bottom is sandy and/or muddy, with no rocks around.

So she's just nicely gliding along the bottom - as long as they can keep her moving until they get her to a crane, they can hoist her out, bail her and she will be non the worse for wear after her little underwater adventure

As they say, that'll buff right out.

Talk about the Dutch being green!  A wind-powered submarine would be even harder to detect than a nuclear one.
