2000 Vizcaya Photos II

All images on this page 2000 by Christina Young.

Welcome to New Jersey's fastest dive boat for deep exploration, the Depth Charge!  The Depth Charge is a 42-foot Provincial, custom built to salvage the RMS Republic and other cool wrecks!

The following pictures (all images from video) are from the voyage of the Depth Charge to the 287- foot long Spanish steamer Vizcaya, Sunday, May 7, 2000.  The Vizcaya sank in 1890 in a collision with the schooner Cornelius Hargraves, six miles east of Barnegat Inlet, New Jersey.  (Continued).

Looking at one of the supports on the side of the engine.
Looking through the engine.  It is very large, and you can easily swim through it. 
Looking outside from the inside of the engine.  Notice the color of the anemones on the sides.  I'm using my brand-new Sartek High Intensity Discharge (HID) wreck light.  I also bought twin HID video lights, but I'm not using them today.
Nearly the same shot, except with the light pointed away.
A huge piece of machinery near the engine.
Looking at a small hatch inside the engine.
Ribs of the Vizcaya.
Enrique Alvarez enters the Vizcaya engine.
Paul Klein on the Vizcaya.
Enrique Alvarez takes this one of me laying out on top of the Depth Charge cabin.  I hope you have enjoyed these pictures as much as we enjoyed being out here on a beautiful day with flat seas!
