Finally, after almost a year of work, the Buchan Elle was laanched today c/o Macduff crane hire. We have repaired the jet drive, changed the bearings and seals, replaced the sea cocks and given her a new coating of Coppercoat antifoul. She should be faster and lower maintenance now. Hope to get some work up dives next weekend when the neap tides come through. Really looking froward to it!
After over a year we are ready to relaunch the Buchan Elle. She has been out of the water for a significant service and to replace the ageing anti-foul which was slowing her down (and requiring us to scrub her hull every couple of months). Hope to get her relaunched next weekend and get back into some exploration. Plan to find and dive the Trevorian, revisit the U1206 and spend some time searching for the deeper wrecks further out.
