25,388 ton battleship – huge! Lies on its back, weight of its guns caused it to turn turtle when it sank in 1919. Able to get through holein bow and pose for photos. (haven’t seen them! Not much marine life, but caught a crab! Missed a lobster when finning after steve. Dropped onto top of wreck at 18m. then down to lowest point at 38.4 m Fast running out of air as stab jacket had blown a seal at crack bottle joint. Came up sooner than wanted with very slow ascent rate, steve too bouyant and bobbed up early. Great dive, cold on top, too short! Some evidence of Horse mussel and crawfish
