    I helped put that in Horsea several years ago. Was called the 'Prince's Channel wreck' then

    I doubt it - the article makes reference to it being used as an "underwater classroom" so they will probably want it at a depth that will give a decent bottom time

    Twins and a stage should give plenty of bottom time. Are the students learning these skills for fun ? Would have thought 30 m is not unreasonable.

    I don't disagree but how many divers actually use twins? i'd suggest they are very much in the minority.

    I know, and agree with you. I'm being selfish for us that do!

    They have enough trouble with divers getting into trouble at the hydrobox so I doubt if it will go deep. I seem to rember there is a wooden thig ship bits at the back past the stangarth?
