    Re: WWII Midget sub in Aus to be open for diving

    i've read that the group 'no frills divers' will be allowed to descend first.

    maybe i should get off my high horse, well i had to the other day - one of the managers of the client we are working for is quite the diver, he just went to truk and was quite proud of hitting 60 something meters on a single tank 'they hung extra tanks for us to do deco on'.

    i enquired as to if he plans to do any technical/ccr training since he seems to enjoy deep diving and he said 'the time, i dont have the time'. i smiled and nodded 'yes, its quite the commitment'.

    I found it interesting in the article that it said there would be cameras placed to watch the wreck for those who want to do some sort of salvaging. Wonder how that's going to work out?

    1 September 2010; Mark Eaves and I did the dive to get a complete HD video record of the wreck (which lies in 55 metres of water on a hard sand/shingle bottom) for NSW Heritage. As a piece of history it's stunning and well worth the dive. Just hope you have better viz than we did! It was pretty dark and murky.

    I'll ask Mark; he shot the video. Not sure how good it is; I've not seen it myself!
