Well in the news today, I stumbled at a article saying a convertible that can go underwater (I say later on) and it was made in the Swiss so I think it's a good idea that the underwater car has no top.

No the sQuba isn't a good idea to build with out a top...

Recently i saw a articfle this is the article: fell free to watch the video of it "drive and dive":

http://www.usatoday.com...

on the first pic of the car it shows the passengers wearing Oxygen masks...now what would happen when the driver runs out of air???...this could prove a problem for your convertable submacar...

Also, what would happen if the car...stalled...your car would sink slowly to the bottom of the seabed...now yes ur passengers might get out safely but what about ur car...im not sure your local mechanic will make a call to the bottom of te sea...

Now in the article the car runs on a electric engine...now in science class the number 1 think i learned for the rest of my life is "electricity+water=danger" they just don't mix so wat would happen if ur electric engine short curcuited and your passengers who are exposed to the elements, b/c of ur car that has to be convertible, get fried.

Now what about the interior of the car? if its a leather interior that waters going to absolutly destroy it...if its fabric then good luck keeping the mold out of it when it dries...you couldn't have a radio...the water will ruin it...oh ya and for all of you who like to talk on your cell phones and drive...well good luck duing that in the sQuba...

And theres always the sealife factor...without a top if you run into a shark or poison jellyfish, or eel good luck not getting snacked on, stung, or electrified...

good luck next round...

I hold my past arguements from the previous round:

-the sQubas no top is stupid
-if the river or passenger runs out of air w/ there oxygen tanks there is a good chgance of death
-if the car stalls than you just lost approxamitly 400,000$ and you have to swim home
-its electric so if it short curcuits then you and the fish are fish fry
-and it will ruin any leather interior or clothes your wearing
-It is a hazard to the wildlife around you
-there is no protection from the wildlife if its convertible

i hope my opponent will return and finish his debate
