Horizontal and 'Vertical' boat

Never seen this before but very interesting, you just need two of everything

Apologies if post in wrong place but couldn't see where to put it as other areas say non boating, anyway here it is, Hold tight! :

It would certainly be a good way of getting the crew out of bed, a quick flip

Nice video, thanks

I've dived the Zenobia wreck off Cyprus, the vehicles are still chained to the cargo deck lying on its side, viz is good out there with 20 plus metres on a good day

Zenobia Shipwreck Diving Larnaca Cyprus

I'm out in Barbados for Christmas and New Year, did my advanced diving out there, my daughter is diving there, I may well get some dives in as well, viz is excellent and diving with the turtles on deep dives very tranquil
