ADMAT returns from Le Casimir Wreck July 2014 Project, in Monte Cristi, Dominican Republic.


This project was a great success and a lot of work  was undertaken and the extent of the remaining bow lower hull was greater than expected. This was made possible by the excellent scientific piece of equipment called the DX200 a hand held proton magnetometer which was kindly sponsored by Aquascan International in the UK.
