Title: Submersible storage vessel system

Abstract: The invention is directed at a submersible storage vessel system and components thereof. The system includes a storage vessel and a support structure for supporting the storage vessel such that a downward gravitational force applied to the storage vessel and an upward buoyancy force applied to the storage vessel are both transferred to the support structure. More particularly, the support structure includes a bearing surface for contacting a ground surface so that the system is supported on the ground surface, a vessel support for supporting the storage vessel so that the downward gravitational force applied to the storage vessel is transferred to the support structure and a vessel anchor for anchoring the storage vessel so that the upward buoyancy force applied to the storage vessel is transferred to the support structure.
