    Re: new massive wreck

    the scan company in japan is working closely with us and provided valuable information.

    we are not engaged in any illegal activities as we co-operate with the authorities.

    our gases are premixed at a commercial gas company.

    within the permissions contracted by the japanese authorities and the owners of the wreck we also do not engage in moving or removing any parts of the wreck.

    yea - weather and sea conditions should be warm and we hope for a lot of shark activity

    Too bad. What's the (un)official justification?

    the reason is safety.

    being in a very active tectonic area, storage and handling of high pressure gas containers is strictly regulated.

    officially certain dive shops and gas companies are allowed to handle gas.

    in our case we are lucky to have one diver on board who ownes a gas company. he is supplying us all the tanks and gas mixes we wish for.

    mr. enamoto is THE man...

    Cheers!

    Doesn't seem to have a lot of current as previously mentioned, and good ambient light. Must be a nice dive...

    yea - visibility was great. current was little.


    we tried again today - twice - but both times the current was ripping. 2-3 knots. no way we could get down.

    we will try again tomorrow and on friday.

    days later - touch down.

    the current shifted sea outwards and gave us a perfect dive with near zero current and super vis.

    we spent 30 minutes on the wreck covering the forward half of the vessel taking tons of photos and video.
