You ought to try a cruise up the Norfolk coast. The damn things are everywhere.
Sometimes up to as much as 3/4 miles off shore. The Cromer, Sheringham, Mundesley section is notorious. Me and me dad used to take his motor cruiser up and down there on passage from Gt Yarmouth to the wash or Humber ports and it aint the first time the diving gear has had to put on!!!!!
These pots were laid in the so called channel. The ships used to drive straight thro em.
It will be interesting to see how many of the pots will be to 'specification' in my experience not many
Thanks to Ribald for the info .
