So, after all these years of secrecy about the names and positions of our local wrecks, we have decided to publish all of their details on the web.

Our main reason is that we have such a collected wealth of information about these great maritime vessels it seemed unfair to hoard.  It’s also because these wrecks are on a pretty unforgiving and remote part of the UK coast, for people to dive them, they would have to be committed – and the deep diving culture nowadays tends to be of the look-don’t-touch nature.  We’ve been secretive to protect the remains through the lump hammer and crow-bar days, but they can probably look after themselves now.

And, after finding, researching, diving and identifying the ships – over 30 of them since I started diving with Buchan Divers in March 2000 – we have started to move into the deeper water beyond the 12 mile limit.  There are many more interesting wrecks to find and dive – we have good quality information on the positions of some massive remains of vessels like the 7,157 GRT William Rockerfeller, the 410’ long cargo liner, the Cape York and the 480’ long, 8,043 GRT Port Denison – sister ship of the frequently dived Port Napier which sank off Kyle of Lochalsh.  This summer, we will also be looking for the 4,599 GRT Trevorian 3 and the sister ship of the Atland – the Malmland, another wonderful turret steamer.

So we’ll keep this blog going to show our progress to anyone who is interested.

Excellent thanks. My 3rd Great Grandfather was sunk on the Denison in 1940. I'd love to see how you get on. Thanks.

There's no doubt about what how crucial the knowledge of SEO can be to a website. If you want to bring your website out of obscurity, then most of the effort should be on trying to link on the first pages of Google and Bing, for relevant search terms.

Not all web design firms are created equal, and the best way to determine just what you might be dealing with is to check out the company's reputation. Do a little investigative work here before you make any decisions regarding a web design company. One excellent option is to check out the company's ratings with the Better Business Bureau.

I have a Blogger blog that is hooked up to my personal website. The actual blog is linked off of the homepage. I would like to know if there's a widget or something that I can put on my website's homepage that will show my latest blog posts. Not the whole post, but maybe just the headline and a link to go to my blog..

The growing use of internet has ultimately compelled IT companies to invest heavily into web design and development. Selecting a feasible website design company from among a hoard of such service providers blooming every day is hence a great challenge. You definitely need to do intense research to finally opt in to a professional vendor that abides by your requirements and proves true to your expectations.

There are many sites which are not accessible to the users or visitors coming to the site. So you should always be aware why your site should be made accessible to all the visitors coming to your site.

Once we know the importance of having a website and thus we need one, then it is time for us to decide and choose who will be the one who will build it. If we are knowledgeable and technically equipped on how to do it, then we can develop our own website. However, in some cases a professional website is not the only answer to our marketing needs. Most small companies today would like to outsource the job in order to save time and effort.

If you do not have a website, you are missing out in tons of leads and prospective clients. Using the Internet to market your business is one of the best investments you can make.

If you have ever dreamed of working on Wall Street, then you might be an ideal candidate for a job with an SEO agency. That may seem like quite a stretch to go from stocks to search engine optimization, but both industries are quite chaotic and involve a lot of risk.
