    Ligurian Sea returns another ship, likely the wreck of the Italian destroyer Gioberti

    Ligurian Sea returns another ship, likely the wreck of the Italian destroyer Vincenzo GIOBERTI.

    Yesterday, 10 August, Lorenzo Del Veneziano (discoverer of the wreck of the German u-boot U-455) with Roberto Liguori and Lorenzo Stucchi dived a "new" shipwreck offshore Deiva Marina (La Spezia, Italy).

    The wreck is lying on a deep trench with a depth of 150 to 260 meters. The stern of the ship (divided into two sections) is incredibly hanging on the edge of the precipice: on the starboard side, the bottom is 156 m deep; On the left one, the depth is indefinite because the depth sounder goes out of range; the highest part of the stern reaches the depth of 142 meters.

    Despite the good weather and sea conditions it took three hours to place a safe mooring on the wreck.
    The dive was challenging, but conducted successfully, thanks to the skill and preparation of the divers. Very precious was the assistance work, conducted with mastery by Davide De Marco. Thanks to Elena D'Amico and Massimo for their help and the valuable collaboration.
    A challenging exploration, a new "team success".

    Fantastic! Congrats!!

    What kind of bottom time did you guys pull? What was the overall runtime?
    Just curious, I know my limits

    OK, I'm no tech genius but I'd really like to know why he has a 2X4 bungeed to his stage bottle?

    It's to beat the sharks when they get to close I also notice it, all I can think is that it's a steel bottle and the 2x4 is there for buoyancy.

    for this first dive
    bottom time up to 14 minutes (more or less) between 140 and 150 mt with a runtime of 3 h (more or less)

    the "thing" bungeed to the stage bottle of Roberto is for buoyancy (and not for shark!). We often use 20 lt steel bailout stage that can be negative (depends on the gas used).


    thank you!
