    Hi Arebi
    any information that you like to pass my way I would be happy to post it in the news. Our tech team here in the Emirates is diving the u-boat in Fujairah as well. They would be interested to hear of your discoveries.

    Cheers

    Wow, I for one look forward to seeing some pics and reading about this adventure of yours. Did you explore the interior of the wreck at all? Perhaps you could give us some history on the wreck, how it went down, what happened to the crew and the weaponry onboard ect. That is if you know all that.
    One more question, did you find any treasure down there :D Imagine what it would mean to a soldiers family if say he went down with that ship and you return his personal belongings to them...

    thats is incredible light and vis for that depth. I saw the video footage that Ali took on the u-533 at 110metres, it was pretty dark.
