Rather good!

You are also lucky to have some underwater visibility in your pond.

A pity about the date and time stamp. You can usually get rid of that. If it's an 808 keyfob cam, this usually involves a firmware update (except version 16). Other makes of cam, it's an option buried in the menu system somewhere.

On Sunday the 7th October 2012 it has been reported that some of our local tugs based at the New Brighton boating lake came under attack from subs. At about 10am work began on towing barges out to start work on the wind farm that is being constructed north east of the lighthouse, it has been reported that shortly after leaving a torpedo was spotted just below the surface and then seen to turn heading straight at a tug but luckily it passed within inches of the bow. Shortly after this attack another torpedo was spotted heading straight towards a fully loaded barge and only due the tug skipper’s quick action by way of using full rudder along with very powerful bow thrusters that a direct hit was avoided. I was reported that two subs were working together in this unprovoked attack on our tugs but work had to be done. After a quick discussion between our tug skippers it was decided that more tugs along with other crafts would draw these nasty subs away from the barges.
We can now report that none of our tugs were lost in this unprovoked attack but in fact gained the upper hand when we learnt that we had one of the subs trapped on the lake bottom by our carefully laid blanket weed. Now with this sub out of action we managed to chase of the remaining sub and then returned to this poor stranded sub to find that all attempts to attach a rope had failed and time running out we allowed the use of heavy lifting equipment ( a kids fishing net ) and we can confirm that the sub was brought to the surface and a promise made not to attack our Tugs again.

Ps. I will not tell anyone that it was your sub captured mark. {-) {-) {-) {-) {-) {-)

Regards Dave.

Glad that I was the only one with a charged camera when this happened. discovered that my premature removal from the pond was due to a split bellows that allowed water to enter the rear chamber, fortunatley the lifting gear at that time saved a total loss of the sub. Sub is now repared and ready for action in a fortnights time. Oh and I never did promise not to attack the tugs so beware  <*< <*< {-) {-)
