The Jake seaplane wreck - Palau

This week's addition to my YouTube wreck diving channel is the Japanese Aichi E13A long range reconnaisance seaplane - Allied reporting name JAKE - which lies just outside Malakal Harbor, Palau.

Aichi E13A's were used throughout the Pacific War for coastal patrols and strikes against Allied transports - and near war's end for kamikaze missions.

4 May 2017. Wreck diving YouTube Channel launched

I've launched a new wreck diving You Tube channel featuring short video clips of my own footage from some of the great wreck  centres I'vr explored - such as Truk LAgoon, Palau, Guadalcanal and Scapa Flow. I've annotated as appropriated so you know what you are looking at and I intend to add about one a week when I'm not away diving and set up playlists for each location so if you're planning a trip you can get a flavour of what its like in advance.

24 April 2017. Dive Scapa Flow publication delayed by 1 month.

It's my fault really!! The contract with my publishers Whittles provided for a 220 page book. By the time I'd finished it and done justice to Scapa Flow it has come in at 360 pages! This has in turn meant a longer editing and design process - before the files get sent for printing an dsubsequen tdsitribution of th ebound volumes. We have simply run out of time to meet the provisionally intended publication date of 28 May so to take the heat off we are letting publication slip by about 1 month. No point rushing it.
