    Assalaam walikum,

    I love to swim..but had to give it up. It is impossible to find a pool that is for women only...but I would not swim the Atlantic..you always hear about monsters that lurk in the deep deep gray waters.

    Assalaam walaikum,

    I do not know. I just posted it for someone overseas. I know the economy is tough.

    I have never been in a submarine..but I prefer calmer seas.
