2001 Andrea Doria Photos II

All images on this page 2001 by Christina Young.

The Andrea Doria is one of the world's most famous wrecks, lying on her starboard side in 250 feet of water, approximately 107 miles southeast of Montauk, New York.  She is a nearly 700 foot long Italian luxury ocean liner, sunk in 1956 after colliding with the Swedish liner Stockholm.

For more information on the Andrea Doria, the Grand Dame of the Sea, check out the New Jersey Scuba Diving Andrea Doria Exhibit and the Andrea Doria website.

The following pictures (all images from video) are from the voyage of the Miss Lindsey leaving out of Montauk, New York, to the Andrea Doria, July 3 - 4, 2001 (Continued from Page I).

The remains of an empty china cabinet.  There are more in the area still intact, but harder to get to.
Passing another life boat davit.
Chuck inspects stacks of large, bronze deck windows, laying on the side of the boat deck, against the bottom of what used to be the promenade deck.  There are many of these, glass still intact.  You also can see the teak decking of the promenade.
Chuck heads back to the mooring line at the end of his dive.
This is me with a cage lamp and round brass thing that I'm still trying to identify.  Yep, those are the original, crushproof Nomex aviator's hoses and small-bore Scott Aviation DSV on my Mk-15 rebreather.  Unlike what some people say, they breathe great at 250 feet (I can't tell the difference between that and 20 feet).  I'm convinced that if you have trouble breathing them, you probably don't have enough helium in your mix (I'm breathing a 10/50 trimix diluent here).
Steve Lovas gets suited up for his second dive of the day.
Petey Wohlleben reads an article on WWI U-boats in the Miss Lindsey's galley at the end of the first day.
Passing the empty china cabinet again.  Some nice, painted, oriental first class china came from this area.
Frankie Pellegrino and Richie Kohler examine their booty at the end of a dive.  It included many pieces of silverware, some juice glasses, and a couple of pieces of first class china.
Dan Bartone heads up at the end of his dive, the second day out.  On the second dive of the first day, him and Steve Lovas discovered a room with beautiful, large silver platters, which we aptly named the "Dan and Steve Silver Room."
