21 October 2018 – Shirala

Report by Stuart McKendrick

A beautiful flat calm autumn afternoon saw six of us set out for the Shirala. Having shot the wreck the first pair entered the water and finding that the shot had been dragged of the wreck by the current sent the shot back to the surface.

Once they had completed their dive with the current still running we had to to reshot the wreck before the next two pairs could go in. The water was a warm 16 C with 8m visibility. From the top of the bow you could clearly see the sea bed which is unusual. The wreck had a large shoal of Bib on it and a large Conger eel decided to come out and say hello next to the bow. Due to the time we got back to the marina we left the boat in the water.

Julian and Tim went down a couple of days later to recover the boat.
