this item has cased me trouble?? Is it bronze/ gunmetal? What is its actual diementions? I have trouble with the vessels date of build 1951 not later?Hey every body
i find this on the starboard side (engine room) on the wreck of Wayfarer 2 (last name Mitera Zafira) if someone know what can be...i'm very curious to know...
is 14,96 inch diameter and is bronze made...
Thank you very much. It's very interesting
Yes normally you have a few spares that you keep ready to fit, and you then over haul the ones you remove. What you have is only a part of a valve assembly they would normally be built up like the photo in #5Thank you very much! finally the mystery has been solved
do you think it can be a spare part?
i had forgotten in my dotage before inert gas blankets for oil tankers the fitting of the emergency air salvage compressor in the fore spaces, and the main deck air line, with connections and shut off cocks for each tank coaming, which also had an air salvage. Cock connection for emergency useage.
I was interested in this one, She was built at Doxford in Sunderland, apparently the widespread destruction isn't an explosion but due to storms, she caught fire while carrying iron ore after running aground. Do wonder if this was 'accidental'!Thank you very much Dave, I appreciate
it's really very interesting, I have done more than 100 dives on this wreck, it is completely destroyed by a very huge explosion and it is very difficult to find something that is still in good shape
