<font color='#0000FF'>Had a dive recently on a wreck in the Menai Staits, it was the second dive of the day after some s**t viz on the first dive, lost buddies on decent, waves like something from the 'perfect storm' movie and the boat breaking down 14 miles out and needed a bit of a strip down.

I think the skipper tried to redeem himself with a potter round a wreck in the Menai Straits which he said was a dredger lying on its starboard side.

The amount of life on this wreck was great, but due to the viz you had to be 4 inches from it to see it. A cracking dive in good viz!!

Does anyone know any details about it???
