    New Wreck Found - MV Fairwind, NSW Australia

    Hi,

    I've posted some stills and video relating to the recent discovery of a new wreck on the NSW coast. The MV Fairwind isn't particularly historically significant, but 17 lives were lost and it's been a mystery for the past 60 years after disappearing in bad weather. The wreck is currently in 87m of water.

    Since discovering the wreck several month ago, we've collected a reasonable about of photo and video evident of the site. All dives were done on Inspo CCRs, with runtimes in the 4 hours space.

    More info and video can be found at http://bit.ly/8XZgMj

    Divers on the project included:

    Mervyn 'Nipper' Maher
    Fill Gray - http://stingraydivers.com.au
    Tony Kean
    Kevin 'Pops' Okeby
    Mark Eaves
    Geoff Cook (research)
    and myself.

    Kind Regards,
    Damien Siviero

    Nice work Damien,

    It's always good to find a new wreck and even better still if you can find it's identity.

    I am running out of excuses why I shouldn't come down there and have a look around.

    Regards,

    Lance
