      Thorness Bay Protected Wreck

      Ok, I realise that I've been more than a little absent from the forum for a while. I have been doing a few things. One such thing was to visit a wreck site last year and help to report on a trail that had been set up. Well, I couldn't resist taking some cameras along too...



      A little about the wreck (there are various links with the video on YouTube) and the video...

      It sunk in the latter half of the 19th century. There is a lot more under the stones. We were due to dive it in September but the weather was bad. We were advised that the viz would be terrible. In the end, it turned out nice. Real nice.

      I was using a new setup & camera on the day for the first time. I'd recently flooded my GoPro Hero 4 Black and was using a GoPro Hero 5 Black for the first time. I use a "tray" to mount the camera and a couple of lights along too.

      I cheekily asked Mark Beattie-Edwards if he would record us on the boat and getting in/out of the water. He did and I am grateful for the additional footage. At the time I didn't really know who he was. He's the CEO for the Nautical Archaeology Society. I did manage to capture a lot of other activity on the boat, as well as on the pontoons.

      What a great piece of film.

      I can also better understand the medical problems; that black, rubbery skin and the large hump on your back. Is there a cream you could rub in?

      pmsl - The only solution is to dive more frequently

      It needs more saltwater. Lots of saltwater.

      p.s. I'm the one wearing the blue drysuit towards the end
