All the media info says she will be around 24m, I know nothing about diving, but apparently this is a depth most people will be able to reach.

The position I gave is only approximate, but they do say she will be near the JEL.

Have you got a exact date yet? The web sites I have seen say April and that's all.

I hope to get down to see the sinking in the new RIB if it has arrived.

Ginger, I see that we have have now got Shaymus here in Brixham as our E/D SM now. If you ever get up to Brixham give me a bell.

I haven't got a date yet, but the news said it would be next month (March). I am going to badger Brixham Coastguard on Tuesday too see if they know anything yet.

I dont think Shamus could handle the pace down in Falmouth.

I would be interested in the trip. It depends on what day it is though.

Thanks

Would be delighted to have you on board Mark.

Do you want to join in and crew in my boat and if so where?
Or will you come down in J2?

Let's keep our ears to the ground for "The Date".

HMS Scylla

If I'm not mistaken that Ship is languishing in Portsmouth Harbour.

If so does anyone know when they will be moving it to Plymouth?

SHe is in Plymouth now I believe.

She is in dry dock for definate, they are doing the work neede prior to sinking her.

There may be one of her sister ships still in Portsmouth, I think about 42 were made altogether.
