Never realised that seals dived so deep, nor lived that far offshore.
Rebreathers are like women; they pretend to love you, whilst taking all your money and trying to kill you.
That Type XXI was my "Ambition Dive"; but as my gas diving days are behind me now, not one I will ever achieve.
I bottled two trips out there on the grounds of cost, one was a good trip to miss, it went sideways.
Should have gone out on Watcher when I was still single.
Seemingly I am a wannabe JJ wanker
You ever see the film where a US carrier gets taken back in time, to Pearl Harbour before the Japanese attack?
Ends up with the Nuclear powered Enterprise Launching a squadron of F14s to intercept the Japanese fleet.
The Type XXI is damn near in that league, they look more like a Nuc than a Pig boat.
I love subs, the k class boats off May Island are awesome dives, maybe due to their size and unusual design.
Maybe it's the tenuous link between diver and the former crew, or the fact that they are still in their natural environment, seemingly resting waiting for a sepulchral call to arms.
Or maybe it's cos the nav is easy!
It's fairly poor video as it was recorded with my Fuji F11 but this was my best effort on the day
The recording from my original GoPro Hero covered the entry (with obvious typo) shows the wreck as we first saw it...
