I received a phone call from a diving buddy of mine at six o'clock this morning telling me to check the news as apparently the Scylla has resurfaced !
No that can't be I thought must be a wind up, but I checked sky News anyway, nothing reported, checked the Internet news, nothing!  Well something is bound to be on this diving forum, nothing!
Ah ha April fools, but that was yesterday, phoned my mate and apparently he heard it on the news last night!
I wonder how many people fell for that, well I sort of believed it, but then I'm very gullible !
Anybody else see that?

My evening paper says that she has. Something to do with air pockets in the hull made her turn turtle and pop up. There's now an operation going on to secure her to stop drifting. Then they're going to start blowing holes in the hull to re-sink her. Chances are she'll remain turtled now though.

Should've called the Germans!
