I did receive a sidescan image of the wreck some time back. It did not strike me as being anything other than a XB type.
The thing that bothers me is the insistence of the webmasters of that site on the presence of the XIB in Vigo for 4 days, in full view of many people and NOBODY took a picture of it? I consider this entire story one of the great attempts at a hoax in the field of naval history - one Surcouf is enough, we don't need two.
