<HTML>Dear Oliver,
I dunno know but you might ask the Red Sea sharks.
By the way, not far away from Port Sudan there is a sunken cargo full of (It'lian) ammunitions. When war was announced she was sailing uncomfortably close to British force settlements. Her skipper, conscious of both his ship value and the cargo danger, scuttled her simply opening the Kingston valves. He was captured and praised for not setting up an unwelcome mega firework display. Being technically civilian sailor men, he and the crew were later repatriated.
The ship went down intact, at professionally divable dept, apart from the above mentioned cheerfully animals.
Greetings
walter M.</HTML>
