    USS Monitor 2008 Expedition



    August 19, 2008. Day three of our trip and scientific expedition to dive on the most famous warship of them all, USS Monitor. Protected in the first ever US Marine Sanctuary, the USS Monitor is slowly deteriorating. But just as the deterioration takes parts of the ship away, it inturn reveals something of itself and her heroic crew. This 3 minute presentation follows divers on their first dives to the great ship. Produced, written and narrated by David Ulloa of Valeo Films Inc.

    Very nice. I just watched the raising of the monitor a few hours ago, well they raised the turret and sent it to the mariners museum.
    Thanks for sharing your video.

    Cheers,
    Hunter

    Re: USS Monitor 2008 Expedition

    Thanks everybody..!! The wreck of the USS Monitor is one of my favorite wrecks dives of all time. I've seen other warships, but this one has character, history and a great story of the little ship that could. I'm working on going back to see her this summer and finish the documentary i started 3 years ago..!

    BTW, I'll post day 1 & 2 later this week.

    Thanks again for all the wonderful comments!!

    Best,
    David
