    39 to go. I hope the location stays quiet so those illegal salvages dont harvest the hull.

    Divers think they've found a U.S. submarine lost during WWII — CBS News

    Congrats to the dive team!

    There is nothing like a fisherman's "mark or mark's" (and a side scan sonar when possible) in aiding one in locating / narrowing the field in the search for ship wrecks (as was often proved to us).

    Grenadier is "the one that got away" from us though. We searched for her over several years but no luck. If the approx. location given is correct, then they found her a bit further north than where we were searching.

    Again, kudos to the dive team.

    Opps, obviously missed those posts / thread!!! My apolgies.

    What heading was it under?

    Not wreck diving I assume?

    Anyway, maybe a MOD reading this thread could move my post over to whats-his-monikers thread.

    TIA.
