Poachers Submarine Stranded On Hout Bay Beach [HOAX]

Reports from authorities are saying the latest vessel to be washed up on Cape Town shores is one of poachers. The submarine is said to be used to transport illegal perlemoen and crayfish offshore! If any has some other awesome pictures of this submarine please email them to dylan2580@gmail.com I would love to add them to the post as this is the only one I can get my hands on so far…

Or it could even be a submarine being used to transport drugs to or from our shores… Hmm? Or could it be a hoax from some funny character? I thought I would share it anyway… Thanks to @790TV for the awesome image, if it is a hoax you have them to blame for spoofing us ;)

      HAHA yeah as I said in the post, possible hoax from 790TV – not a bad idea could have been executed better though! Surprised it took so long though…

    Or maybe the sub that was supposed to be hidden under the fishing trawler in Clifton whilst passing through

    You can see by the picture that it is a spoof. Very photoshop. Just look at the submarine’s shadow….

    Hout Bay beach must be jealous of all the attention Clifton beach is receiving. Had to make something up to be in the news. Shame.

    Jokes aside it might just be an enemy submarine that attemted to enter Hout Bay harbor. My folks told me about that one Get into the WWII SA military archives,

    Info below from this website
    http://wikivillage.co.za/east-fort-hout-bay

    in the 1939-1945 Second World War life returned to the battery site when a coastal artillery Pill Box was built within the old protecting earth works of the power magazine. Two quick – firing Naval guns were mounted to protect Hout Bay once more. The war came very close when enemy submarines were successfully hunting the ships of Allied convoys carrying troops and supplies from Europe to the Middle East via the Cape
