Today we moved the dive support vessel Tuono over a new area from where we can reach 3 more submerged targets. The process has become significantly more efficient than when we started this project last week. within an hour we set the lines over a target, laid baseline and sent the first diver down to explore the seabed. In the mean time, the ISIS set off to mark another target earmarked for exploration. This particular target is buried in two meters of mud. To ensure we were searching in the right place we sent two teams of divers down to prod the seabed with a long steel pole. Both teams confirmed the presence of a solid object deep in the mud. The next team of divers prepared the grid within which we will be excavating a trench measuring 4 X 4 meters by 2 meters deep. We have at least two very hard days of underwater work ahead of us.
On a lighter note, we all lunched on the Tuono today. Captain Alessandro has some fresh fish delivered and we enjoyed this together with some pasta and mussels. It was a great meal with enjoyable company!
