Found a short clip of a submersible arm molesting a piece of the bow on Instagram. I was totally disgusted by this. Not sure which expedition it was, but a shot of one of the MIR preceded it.
In what way? Did they just bump into something or were they grabbing stuff? If a submerisible has a little bump here and there it would seem a small price for the exploration and research they have been able to carry out on the wreck. The reason I ask was on the last expidition the submerisible barley nudged it and people (media) were trying to make it out like they were doing full demo on her. From the looks of it it probably brushed against some rusticles.
Yeah I saw it but really couldn't make out what I was seeing other than the shackle. I guess i can see the sub arm now that you point it out. Thanks. You'll have to forgive me because I've reached the stage where I have to use my cheaters to see finer details now. It sucks but it is what it is. I would have to go see the clip but I don't use any of the Twits, Insta, Fakebook stuff. Guess its my loss...well maybe not.I don’t know the name of the part, but it’s a hinge on the front of the bow that held a cable to the forward mast, which I assume is fragile, and the submersible arm is tugging it up and down for no apparent reason except to see if it still moves. Did you not see the image? This isn’t a sub landing on the deck for exploration. They grabbed the most iconic part of the wreck and tugged on it for no reason.
