Pic of the Beagle I took yesterday on the Millport cruise. Took a few others but didn't really have the time to get good pictures without delaying the run round.
You can see the boiler and engine plus the collision damage from just aft of the bow.

Deep Norwegian wrecks

Hi,
here are some images of the Norwegian steamer Anna Sofie, sunk in 1944
http://home.online.no/~ge-joer/anna_soe.htm#overskrift
The first picture is from one of the first days out, the sound where this wreck is situated opens out to the North Sea, an at that time the waves were over a meter, and there also was some current, not the best conditions Included the picture just to show the noise from the engine. The second is a day later, still som waves and current, but better. Here I am nearly on top of the wreck, lying on her side, I think we can see the bottom with the bilge keels. The third picture is from the inside, the bottom is sloping towards the wreck, leveling out just before the hull. Had some trouble keeping a straight course against the waves and current. Lastly there is the first setup of the transducers, I have since turned the SS transducer around with the cable pointing aft, the noise was improving, but I still have to trim out the engine somewhat. Anybody happen to know the exact location of the various transducers, and their vertical angle?

Fantastic! wish I was able to accelerate the purchase of ours. You'd think it wont be too long before we can get a side image of all the wrecks on the UK top 100 list or start augmenting Wrecksite.eu reports.

i dont know the name of the wreck, still trying to find out.

i have got images in deeper water, and they are fantastic. i cant publish them, as they are for a forthcoming book on the Coronation, but getting some more today, so i will post up some of those.

we looked at the Humminbird, but the lowrance structurescan system had better functions, and none of the freeze problems the Humminbirds have suffered from.

The Coronation is protected, but i am a licensee, so i can dive her when i want.

if you click to our website, you can arrange to dive her if you want!

Well heres one I took yesterday of the Thalia. I found the downscan function and had a play with that. I hadn't tried it because I misuderstood the manual (Lowrance manuals are one of the companies weak points) and thought it only worked if you had a broadband sounder.
This is a view of the wreck (twice crossing at different angles) from directly above looking straight down rather than side scan.
