    Hi Duffman,

    My understanding is that its very shallow.

    Someone along the line said if it was a full size u-boat the conning tower would have been visible at low tide.

    I have a chart of lough Foyle, I'll have a look later and see what depth the area I think they are talking about is.

        Silly me, thinking that X-craft carried a crew of 4, or is it once again a case of lazy journalism...

          No, X-craft had three, at least.

            3 and a diver, but I think the 3 were essential, the diver would be as well for many missions.

              Shame, all that hype. Still I wonder what it is? An old canoe that ramped up the sonar returns? Surprised they havn't sent down divers to have a look anway.
