    I don't know if you guys noticed, but one of the previous pictures I posted showed his helicopter hanger door open and there was a second copter inside along with his Mercedes G-class SUV!

    I don't think that first link you just posted is of Octopus... the hull's white in that shot. I did see the G-Wagon though. The subject just came up in the Technical Discussion section.

    I don't think that the last link you just posted in 27 is also of Octopus.
    http://img2.exs.cx/my.php?loc=img2&image=159480464EXPvpu_fs.jpg

    She has no heli landing possibilities on top, only aft and forward.

    Great links.

    Nice to see Octopus in action, with all her details and possibilities. So up to now only pics are still missing from launching the submarine out of the marina .

    We have produced a very detailed , high quality 3D-model and computer-movies form Octopus for HDW, also with the sub in action. Sorry, but up to now we have no permission to show this impressive material to the public.

    Sorry about that. I just double checked the place where I got the pictures and it had 6 in a row of Octopus and the last one was of Le Grand Blue. Sorry for the confusion again...

    As i understand it, that site is simply used for uploading images to and sending links out. Due to privacy retrictions it does not allow you to search all uploaded images.

    if I am right somewhere in the forum someone asked for a pic from inside the tender garage. Here's a link.

    http://www.roodberg.nl/eng/marine/octopus.php

    Roodberg is a company which is building mostly slips and cranes for marinas, but as you can see also for Megas.
