A table showing ideal slack times on the Alex across a range of weekends
A hold full of statistics about the Alex van Opstal, from code letters to dimensions…
The Target: Simple really – finally figure out where the various chunks of the wreck are with respect to one another and make a very crude map of the site to guide us when looking to prduce a more detailed map later on in the project….If only it were that simple….
At the end of this year’s ‘week in Weymouth’ event we had one dive on the Alex – in amazing visibility and totally slack conditions. For once we could really see what was going on and get a better picture of the wreck site and it’s surroundings.
A summary of the results from various expeditions, and links to some resources.
So far this year we’ve dived the Alex twice and found two different views of the wreck. On the first dive we found the main section of the ship from just behind the number 2 hold to the engin rooms. Lots of wreckage was dotted about there.
