What a coincidence that DOS EXPLORER is owned by this company, Deep Ocean Salvage!

Well spotted, young man!

And another co-incidence that at our Teesside Ship Society meeting tonight we've enjoyed a fascinating talk and video about the salvage of silver ingots from the Palmer (Hebburn) built GAIRSOPPA.
