I have a particular affinity for that panel. It was the first big piece lifted.
We moved it in October 2000.
I knelt on the lakebed and blew a lift bag without knowing that I was sitting on top of the target. How I escaped being cut to ribbons as it exploded from the mud and shot past my face or dragged to the surface with it I will never know but that was the first and last piece bagged to the surface. After that we took a tend-line with a set of grips on the end, clamped them on then put the smallest toot of air in the lift bag then pulled on the line once all the divers were safely aboard. Once clear of the bottom the bag would expand and do all the work.
Happy days...

Current POTD

Mike are you not itching to get the radio set mounted in, along with all the other gubbins..now that the cockpit is sealed in ?

I know it'd all have to come back out again, but still !!

Not really- as you say, it'd just have to come back out again anyway, and there's not much point in putting stuff in just for it to get filthy. Plus the radio box would be in Checkie's way for installing the cockpit wiring loom.

Having seen the way the underside of the bows is fastened on, I would say that something had gone very, very wrong.. ;) ;)
