Silly buggers

The three snorkels broke the surface of the ocean, tiny specks far off the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, and at a steady clip skimmed towards the United States.

Six feet beneath the waves throbbed a vessel like no other, a 15-metre (49ft) long wood and fibreglass submarine carrying a fortune in cocaine and a crew with a mission improbable.

Taking turns to breathe through the PVC pipes jutting over the waves, the four smugglers were risking a vast expanse of sea, US and central American coastguard patrols, and the possibility their home-made U-boat would disintegrate.
