Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
They could take a tip from Columbian drug smugglers, who build ships that basically run just below the surface with snorkels up for air and exhaust.  They are going for a low profile to avoid detection, but a similar design on a scale of a large ferry with tanks that could be pumped out for docking would be much less vulnerable to most sea conditions. :-)
