We do this dive a lot, although this was only my second time. Explore the wreck for a while and then drift over the inverted hull then down the river for a kilometre or so. It’s a good opportunity to practice drift decompression using a delayed SMB, but lately I haven’t found the dive all that exciting and frankly I’d rather spend the time exploring the wreck a bit more.

On September 1st, 2008 Rich, Brad, Dave and I made it our first dive of the day. I spent most of the time on the wreck with Rich, and ascended into the large hold in the bow, but by that time the water was very turbid and I wasn’t able to see very much.

After that, we drifted over the hull and joined the others at the props for the river drift, decompressing on my EAN79 for 8 minutes before being picked up by the dive boat.
