Simon’s Sub Counter

Lake Subs

                                                               INTRODUCTION

   The development of the modern submarine was the essential achievement of Simon Lake with his contribution of the “even-keel” type submarine that greatly differed from the “sinking” type or “diving” type submersible. His submarine career spanned over 50 years, from the 1880’s until his passing in 1945. However, his worldwide influence on submarine technology occurred primarily between the 1890’s through the early 1900’s.
   This section shall provide an overview of the development of the Lake-type submarine from his earliest experimental submarine, the Argonaut Junior (1894) to the his last built research and salvage submarine, the Explorer (1933):
