Voici Bernadette

This is the best video I've seen of the sinking yesterday. Anybody know if it landed on the Port side, keel down, or turtled?

I don't know how to embed it

It landed right side up. My friends at Stuart Scuba dove it just after it settled. Here is a pic from a friend.

Thanks Scott, I'll be a lot happier to see it underwater, not gonna miss seeing it at the dock every day like I have for the last year or so

Re: Voici Bernadette

I have not been out there, but the original target was 100' to the sand, ~60' to the top of the 180' ship.

Re: Voici Bernadette

Would have been cool to have had a couple of go-pros strapped on to the deck for the ride down.

Sweet! When did it impact the bottom, I was watching but didn't catch it.

Wow, re-breather for 100 foot dive. I guess if that's the gear you have.

Re: Voici Bernadette

I think they spent awhile on the wreck. Less bottles to carry and easier decompression.
