These photo's are of the survey Ship Ocean Voyger sinking in the Indian Ocean due to the failuer of a 36" valve in the Engine Room. All hands got off with out loss on to the "Chase Boat" An American warship tried to assist (seen in the back ground) but two of the three salvage pumps she sent on board didn't work so all three were removed .
and she sank after 9 hrs ... Voyger was the ship taking most of the film and pictures of the salvage work on the 20 ton section of the TITANIC'S Hull on the 1998 expedition

AS I can't for some tec reason at this time send photos to the forum Martin is going to insert them for me

I take it that the two big holes are the restaurant overlooking the stern and the smaller one on the left was your cabin Bob?

Just sorting them out into a top 5 or 10 and then we'll have a pole.

Afternoon Doug! (my own personal spell checker)

 Actually, it's a bloke from Poland choosing the photos, so would that make it a "Pol?"

Have a Jury of Polish persons, then we could poll the Poles to find out who's in pole position.

Actually Martin asked a team of highly motivated, experienced, well respected and skilled adjudicators to select the winning picture.


Unfortunately they refused so he asked the moderators instead. :embarrassed:
