22 Jan Heroic Stuff
We have had a bit of everything over the last few months at theVC, but one job in particular stuck out as one that would anyone stop complaining about their work.
We had a day out with the Rena Salvage & Fire dive crew on the Astrolabe (Otaiti) reef in the Bay of Plenty as they are preparing to cut and lift the massive seven story accommodation block off the sunken stern section of the wreck, which lies at its deepest point down to 65 metres.
These guys are nothing short of heroes, putting their lives on the line each day to cut down and clean up the wreck on the edge of a submerged mountain the best they possibly can.
Try having a tough day at the office in about 50 metres underwater, then having to finish it off under decompression for 45 minutes.
All in a days work though.
