    Nice find! Thanks for sharing it, JU88.

    Too bad it is too deep for rec diving.

    well..i guess that is why it still has helmets and guns in place :) its to deep to be scavanged by divers..not all divers to that but unfortanly most wrecks aviable to divers will be stripped of parts sonner or later.. i just hope they will salvage it :)
