WRT the wreck, spot on Duncan .. Salem Express ... great wreck dive but tragic story ... around 800 lives lost but official figures actually unknown.
Sits into about 25 metres of water near Hurghada.

Paul, believe we will meet with you next year on Lundy trip ... I believe you have exchanged emails with Jo Horrocks.

Ah yes Keith of course, looking forward to it, glad you can make it ^_^ Thanks for the wreck info, something I've yet to explore properly are the Red Sea wrecks, I've only done Thistlegorm in 2002 and the Numedia in 2008

I think that she's haunted...

... there used to be queer noises near the stern.

It's all downhill from there...

... except, possibly, the Umbria in Sudan.

I saw Trevor Rees' portfolio of 3 yesterday, and if he only managed 6th place (I think that's what it was), you were against stiff competition at BSoUP. You did better than me: my entry to the EMUP competition last night vanished into electronic limbo, and no-one saw it!
