Bruce:

Yes, I have the HDS 10.

Tim: Its an Lowrance HDS 10 with the structure scan module. Its a transom mounted transducer, not a towed fish.

Latest trip, and so far, deepest scan with the LSS1.

German steamer, sank in 2ww, 100m long in 45m of water rests on its port side. You can clearly see the torpedo hole in the side. Huge!

Regards
Henrik

Trips have got in the way but was out today and found two barges completely by accident, I was looking for something else!
Both look to be around 10-20m long.
Was an expensive day out though as my main GPS aerial failed halfway through the day and I did in the prop recovering onto the trailer, when I powered on it picked up a full car windscreen rubber of all things and wound rocks into the prop.

Few more barges

Out looking for more of the aircraft near Oban today, din't find any more although I eliminated more areas from the search area.
Found two more ammunition barges though, one of which looks worth a dive!

Absolutely fascinating Bruce.

We've tried to locate the SS Fram that was torpedoed during WW2 and split in half. Although we have GPS coordinates - it's still a 'needle in a haystack' without the sort of kit you have. This was for fishing - not diving. More details here - if you're ever on the east coast.

The Fram is dived quite often by guys from Deeside I know. The marks they have ar good enough to shot the wreck so should be good enough for fishing.
I am sure they just came out one of the many books on wrecks in the area.

New pic showing two of the above barges in one pic. Dived one during the week and it is a nice little steam lighter of around 20-25m length complete with the boiler fittings, engine and prop/rudder still there.
Even had a resident lobby that was just out of my reach in the small boiler room.......

Bruce, what sort of kit do you need to get images like that and how much does it cost? I'd love to have a poke around the sea bed here, I could probably spend a year without going outside Stanley harbour
