So raise your hand if you think that was a Russian

Whenever I've dived it (from RhIBs) we had to shot it ourselves.
It could be that both are true like here. In the winter, when not many people visit the JEL, the shot gets broken off (some say the fishermen do it, but I doubt it).
The shot is usually replaced by one of the local skippers.
The easiest way is to let the skipper get on with it
The best dive is the after tide. Before slack the tide runs mainly from the bow towards the stern but it also runs a bit from port to starboard. Your best bet is to drop it between the bow and hangar and slightly to the port side, that way it will drift into the wreck, drift along the hull and catch on the hangar just in front of the conning tower (on the RIB we have the bow, conning tower and stern marked so it is easy).
None of the local skippers will have any problem with it and some of them can drop the shot right into the conning tower.
