David...your description is a bit much

Response to Petition to Save Hawaii Undersea Research Lab - 500 signatures needed

While the cause might be worthy...your statement that HURL is the only "civilian" submersible capability in the US is wide of the mark. Woods Hole in Massachusetts has manned submersibles, remember Alvin? Not to mention an impressive collection of unmanned ROVs. Scripps in San Diego also has significant submersible capability. That isn't even touching the extensive submersible, primarily unmanned, capabilities of the private sector (oil and gas particularly).

While HURL may have been helpful in your specific area of endeavor...there is nothing that says that there aren't resources available from other sources that wouldn't also accomplish the mission.
