Yesterday marked the beginning of a new era for Deeper Dorset. This might look like a pile of old blocks (and it was) but the fact of the matter was that we had seen this area of rocks on the sidescan sonar in 65ft of water. Because of the regular shape of the rocks and the obvious straight lines it made us think we could be looking at something man made and normally we would have put a diver down to take a look. We now have the capability in no time flat to deploy cameras exactly in the right position so that we can check out the mark and within minutes we can now put this one to bed as a spurious contact. This is going to revolutionise our ability to check out sidescan targets without divers and all the faff that entails. Finding divers keen enough to take a look in the first place has always been an issue and now we don’t need to worry about it. That said we still need divers and have a small band of great guys that support us however there just aren’t enough of them so we have had to find a more productive way of checking out sonar targets.
