    There was a show a few weeks ago on Discovery, I think, that show some really deep penetrations into the wreck. I caught it halfway through, so I don't know who was on the team, but I'm pretty sure there was some footage of the engine room. The team was definitely on RB, as there were several shots of different divers throughout the show. I saw a Meg, a Kiss, and perhaps an Inspo. You might check out Discovery channel's website to see if there is any info.

    I don't know where to find blueprints, but Innovative scuba has a laminated map available. It just shows the main structure and points of interest, not the interior.

    I've been in as far as the hangar bay and took a quick look down the big hole in the middle of the ship they cut for the sinking. I was on OC and pretty much leave as soon as I go to depth.

    Hope this helps,

    FD:)

    Yes and yes. The deck plans are available from users Uncle Ricky and IntoTec on The Deco Stop.

    Dammit - I was looking for that video last night. I remember the guy who posted it on the Deco Stop got roasted for going to the engine room on a single cylinder.

    I guess I should have just looked for "Oriskany Engine room" on you tube!

    it was indeed the first thing that came to my mind...i said that guy is nuts!!! but i guess the guy did get a lot of hassle, so i'll let him off. at least i saw 2 regs on his tank...(if that mitigates his actions..)

    I remember him saying he had planned gas conservatively, and had gas staged. Not how I would have done it, but to each his own.

    I forgot about the video. It was on here several months ago. Guess it's confirmed. By the way, I recall the grief this guy caught for this dive. Crazy or brave, depends on your point of view I suppose. I peeked in the big hole in the hangar bay on a single OC 100, but no way I would attempt a major penetration like that. Gotta hand it to him, the guy has balls!....or $&*(## for brains.:D
