In June, 2005 I was offered to follow a team of Commercial Divers from JD Contractor, at work. With that, I had the opportunity to take a different kind of pictures than possible in the world of recreational diving.
The divers task was to make a minimum depth at 14meters above the wreck of Christina, a fishingboat that sank by collision at the end of 2004. Making that depth demanded a cut down of both masts on the wreck…..a task by routine that runned exactly as planned. Unfortunately the underwater visibillity wasn't that good for photowork like you might see at the few underwaterimages to the left, but it was no problem at all for the well skilled and routined divers to work under these conditions.
Despite of the poor visibillity underwater, I would like to say thank you to the divers and the rest of the crew at Cable One for an exciting experience and for their hospitality.

JD Contractor, who carry out all kind of work underwater is a reputable company around the world. JD Contrator has carried out orders as far away as India and Costa Rica. Among the more local known tasks is the Fu Shan Hai, that wrecked at the Baltic Sea, 2003.
Furthermore, the instigator of JD Contractor, Gert Normann Andersen, is wellknown for his countless discoveries and investigation of wrecks along the Jutland wescoast that has resulted in several TV-productions.
In the 80's, Gert Normann Andersen became the instigator of the museum known as
The Strandingsmuseum Sct. George in Torsminde. In the beginning, a collection of fantastic and unique founds from the wreck of the same name, but later the exhibition expanded remarkable with founds from a huge number of other wrecks, including the U59, discovered by Gert Normann Andersen himself and his excellent divingteam in 2003.
If you have just a little interest in shipwrecks you will never regret a visit at the Strandningsmuseum Sct. George.
