Seeing a broken and tangled steel all over the place I had to take a second to understand what I was seeing and how it should appear on a ship. The shot was well placed athwartships on the wreck, near the stern as I found out later, so I headed off in one direction to see what I could find. Gaping black holes welcomed my torch light, only to be filled with fish milling about and rushing in all directions fearing the light piercing their hidden world.
Once divested I did my O’Dive doppler test and got a meagre 44, not bad but room for improvement. My left clavicle produced more bubbles as usual which hindered my result. At any rate, I was not bent nor even close to it as my unit is set to maximum conservancy. My Eon Steel however did not enjoy the dive and locked itself out after throwing a tantrum but this wasn’t a problem as Redbares have their own deco software in both handsets. I only carry my Suunto for my O’Dive profile.
