The things we get up to, it's not all about diving. Actually, it probably is about diving.

Brass on a shore dive!
Whilst diving with the Sartek camera on a shore dive in Falmouth I found this -
Not sure exactly what it is. It is around 2" diameter and nearly 2" long. It was covered in rust and inside was the remains of a steel sleeve with grease and a ball bearing. The wreck is a WWI German U-Boat that ended up on the shore at Falmouth. Maximum depth for this dive was just 3.4m.
We did try and bring up one of the cast iron ballast blocks but it was too heavy for the 25kg lift bag we had with us. More lift bags required next time :)
