  1. Before I start the vid, I’m gonna assume the sub is black so it’s less visible under water especially at lower depths, and cruise ships are white to increase the visibility

  2. We’ll probably so if the cruise ship goes down it’s easy to find and so when a sub goes deep into the ocean it can’t be seen? I feel like it’s the easy answer here
