There was no diving last Friday on account of the sea state (this is what happens when you leave the Chairman in charge) but there was a dive on Saturday. Brendan reports:
“On Sat, 16 Oct I dived the Energy with DSDC, no current at all, and the viz wasn’t excellent (but still in the 10 - 15 m range), also not much marine life - but saw the huge prop and rudder (no plans for salvage its about 6 meters wide). Also of interest was a navy chopper that kept tabs on us all day, I suspect is to do with the hole our northern neighbour put in a ship recently (local media cited a 'rogue wave'). Also the shipping lane seems to have moved closer to shore, with a chopper constantly monitoring the passage, I suspect our days of diving the Energy are numbered.”
Let’s hope he’s wrong.
