Today i drove the dinghy up the river to alamo sea to dive down to look for possible treasure however its very murky and dark. I think the sub has headlights on it.
So i was wondering, is there any way to take the sub out of the water, transport with a vehicle such as a packer or sky crane, etc?

I dont think the sub may be able to crest the mini waterfalls leading to alamo sea...

It cannot (Make it up the river).. Speaking from experience of an hour drive up that little river leading to the alamo sea, Not only did i get drydocked 100 times on the way up to the mouth of the little river that runs up but I eventually got stuck on the i believe 2nd or 3rd waterfall rapids kinda area.. I just turned the game off and went to sleep angry.

 

If anyone has a solution to getting the sub up there i'd be eternally grateful.

The Cargobob? I have that but I don't know if it has a winch or if it does it doesn't seem to be useable.

Do the following:

 

1. Buy a helipad.

2. Buy a Cargobob.

3. Fly the Cargobob out to Blaine County and pick up the sub.

4. Drop the sub where ever you please.

5. Jump out and get in your sub.

Yeah raavis right it does pick it up.. But uh.. My amazing heli skills turned my cargobob into its own submarine shortly after picking up the sub... :(

 

Edit: note to any future people who try to do it.. Be careful the sub will knock your helicopter around and into the water if you aren't careful.

OR you can have a cargobob near the hangar of Trevor and after the subarmine mission , there is one parked behind the trailer kind of thing. Very useful.

my next mission is to hook a submarine with the cargobob then try to place it on the back of a trailer then hook said trailer up to a truck then drop said trailer into the water and try to release the sub.

Hum interesting , I only carried the thing with the cargobob into the sea , but i didn't think to put on a trailer but that is just for fun i guess since with the bob you can simply drop it into the water.

Can the Cargobob lift all cars, boats and smaller vehicles or just specific ones?

Hmm good question...
May be only for vehicles you could attach a winch to like if the vehicle had a steel bar supporting the weight evenly i guess. Lets wait for zakhuls response.

Yeah thenoosemans right, http://i.imgur.com/59aELSd.jpg just tried it and you can lift other vehicles.

 

That's f*cking awesome! I see a lot of fun gta online antics with that!

 

(I know i tried it on a truck with a steel bar but it also picked up a red small car with a regular roof)

The tow truck with the crane does indeed work on its own. Haven't seen the flat bed one or i'd test it for you.

 

I also have another idea i'm about to go try down at the docks.

Slightly off topic but does anyone know if leaving a submarine in the marina will store it there if I own it?

Two, but I don't think you can steal them. One of them is at the helipads to the left when entering through the main entrance (over the bridge) past the large parking lot, but it takes off the second it loads in, so I haven't been able to catch it. The other one just hovers around over the base, and then flies off.
