Aberdon victim of the U12

Marine Quest took me 40 miles offshore a week ago, aboard their dive boat Jacob George. We were off to the wreck of the Aberdon. This wreck was a victim of the famous U12 which is also a spectacular wreck in the area. underwater visibility was fair being a dark 5 metres with some plankton in the water but not as good as was hoped for.
The highlight of the dive for me was a stone Daltons Carbon Filter. This was discovered by a diver on the trip and left on the wreck for all to enjoy. 
It was a great experience to get out to this wreck and Iain made great use of a weather window. 
My thanks to Marine Quest.
Video footage of the wreck will follow as i put the GoPro Hero3+ through its toughest challenge yet, filming the Aberdon at 51 metres.
