More divers contribute to the survey work on Guenter's

The fine weather today permitted 5 divers to descend on Guenter's wreck and complete more work on the ongoing survey. Preliminary studies and baseline capture work are almost complete. Very shortly, the datum points will be placed and the detailed measurements that we hope will go towards the identification of the wreck can begin. Particular examination of currently accessible features is producing encouraging results. The accompanying picture shows Lynn, one of our NAS-trained volunteers, moving along the wreck centreline, recording lengths and depths.

Preserve Our Wrecks makes National TV News...

Some time after a visit to investigate our survey work on the site of Guenter's Wreck, Global National TV featured divers engaged in the project this evening. This link will take you to coverage. The interest in our work is very welcome. It's already clear that it has awoken interest both locally and further afield. Hopefully, this will give us a leg up when the time comes to seek additional financial and practical support for the activities of Preserve Our Wrecks.
