Drogen-U-Boote: Die Boote der Drogenbanden liegen so tief im Wasser, dass nur ein kleiner Teil aus den Wellen ragt. Das Bild zeigt ein solches Boot, das die US-Küstenwache 2021 im Pazifischen Ozean entdeckt hat.

In the rear a diesel engine, in the front several tanks for thousands of liters of fuel and in between the cargo space and a cabin, hardly larger than the rear of a station wagon.
