Hi,
Most unusual photograph but pleased to see it!
I am still trying to get a sonar scan of a ship in the English Channel.
Regards

Interesting the amount of detail visible. Sad to see, but remarkable, nonetheless.

I hear that she's a great diving wreck. Sad to loose her this way but she is also is a 'grand hotel' for the marine life there!

Spooky looking picture. Is it touched up or is that what appears on the echo sounder trace?

I remember seeing a sonar scan of the scuttled fleet in Scappa once, that was really interesting. I've also seen a colour sonar image of the Mi Amigo which was also interesting to see and so clear too.
