<font color='#000F22'>I've just read about a ferry sinking in the Maldives. Maldives wreck.

Something new to look at when I get there in November!!

<font color='#000F22'>location- sun island resort(5*) nalaguraidhoo island in the south ari atoll, maldives. 2 weeks of diving and sun. Apparently it's all inclusive and wonderful diving. I'm looking forward to it.

Didn't want to have to say this, BUT, can we please remember that 17 folks died on this 'New Wreck'?! I've dived on wrecks in the Maldives which are 'cruiser' size (and no, I'm keeping 'em to myself, GPS and all), but no one died on them and we were able to spend days there diving, full holds and penetration type gig. Happy days.

Ferries going down ('Salem Express'?) invariably means casualties, because in these necks of the woods they are crammed to the gunnels...not just a new wreck.

<font color='#0000FF'>My thoughts exactly Bren, lets not joke about this sort of thing.

Saw the posting last night but couldn't get the link to work.
