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.


5 June 2017. Dive Scapa Flow Centenary edition

The long awaited Centenary edition of Dive Scapa Flow is to be published in just a few weeks on 23 June.

Completely rewritten, it includes recently found wrecks and has new annotated wreck illustrations to show divers what they can expect to see. Cutting edge scans of the main wrecks by Prof Chris Rowland, the Director of the 3DVisLab at the University of Dundee are the most intricate and detailed scans of the Scapa Flow wrecks to date and are simply breathtaking. Some wonderful photography from MV Halton skipper Bob Anderson finishes the book off.
