I was involved in the anchor chain recovery with Caldive, we went up there from Singapore on the DSV YuYo with a Bell Sat system....I believe this was to do with the US Coastguard request for chain to be checked/tested.
Did anything result from this?

I would be interested in using one of the photos posted here in a book I have written about offshore disasters for industry professionals. If the photographer reads these posts I wonder if he could contact me.
