    The article s incorrect on one point. Most German WW2 U boats could reach S America non stop, this type using a snorkel (already in use by the Dutch navy pre WW2) could do it continuously submerged at surface speeds

      I think that is what they were "trying" to say. This is the challenge of having mostly journalism grads doing reporting with little to no other significant area of study, like science, engineering, history, etc. to their experience.
