20 July 2013 – Frode

Having arrived at the marina to find the sea state looking a bit lumpy for the planned trip out to the main wrecks, the decision was made to go for a shorter sea journey and head for the Frode.  Not an easy wreck to find as it is well broken up with the boiler being the only lump of any size but it duly came up on the sonar and the shot was deployed.

Stuart and Mark were first in but Mark re-appeared on the surface after only a few minutes having had problems with his buoyancy.  Stuart appeared shortly thereafter reporting fantastic vis, warm water, no current and …… too short a dive!

Andrew and Jenny were soon in the water and, with the shot a matter of a couple of yards from the wreck, were soon enjoying a great dive with loads of life.  The boiler, as always, was prized high rise real estate for all sorts of life including Jenny’s favourite – tompot blennies.  Having had a good look round for 45 mins it was time to head back to the air breathing world and, having only had a max depth of 9m, our computers refused even to contemplate a safety stop at 5m.  A great dive.
