SS Alert – Saturday 2nd November 2019

Divers: Ben, Youri, Chris, Paul, Simon & Mark

The skies were very overcast, however the seas were flat & the wind was blowing lightly from the N/E & the tide had just changed to the Ebb. We were hoping for some good viz, but we knew it would be dark without the sun light. Simon & I were the second team in, Ben & Youri with the use of their scooters were able to get the wayward shot line back to the wreck. This allowed Simon & I to make the most of our time on the wreck, working on the project. We left our selves just a few minutes to check out the wreck, hoping to find some artefacts missed by the looters. Our 94 minute ascent goes quickly, it always does when you have a most memorable dive. 

Hopefully we can get back to dive the Alert in the next few weeks.
