There are two problems with Monk and Natalie being trapped inside the ballast tank. First, the ballast tanks are not accessible from the inside of a submarine. The other problem is that the ballast tanks are only used to take the sub above or below water; once below the surface, the ballast tanks are full. In order to dive or ascend, the submarine moves devices called "dive planes" up or down. See more
