    I lived and dived in the Truk Lagoon for two years. I found a sunken submarine (at 140 feet). We were able to open the hatch and see the bones of those who died in it. The hatch was later sealed by divers from Tokyo who took some bones back for a ceremony to honor the dead. Did any of you visit that submarine?

    The I-169... I was all over it a year and a half ago. The rear hatches were open. A shame... the story behind the sinking... and of course the later depth charging of the bow section. Still a very nice wreck.
