Ghosts of Voyages Long Forgotten .
The Salen Shipwrecks on the Isle Of Mull, Scotland.
I can just imagine the stories these rotting hulls could tell
The last battle of the German battleship Bismarck took place in the Atlantic Ocean approximately 300 nmi (350 mi; 560 km) west of Brest, France, on 26–27 May 1941. Although it was a decisive action between capital ships, it has no generally accepted name.
On 24 May, before the final action, Bismarck'sfuel tanks were damaged and several machinery compartments, including a boiler room, were flooded in the Battle of the Denmark Strait. Her intention was to reach the port of Brest for repair.Late in the day Bismarck briefly turned on her pursuers (Prince of Wales and the heavy cruisers Norfolk and Suffolk) to cover the escape of her companion, the heavy cruiser Prinz Eugento continue further into the Atlantic. Early on 25 May the British forces lost contact with Bismarck, which headed ESE towards France while the British searched NE, presuming she was returning to Norway. Later on 25 May Admiral Lütjens, apparently unaware that he had lost his pursuers, broke radio silence to send a coded message to Germany. This allowed the British to triangulate the approximate position of the Bismarck and aircraft were dispatched to hunt for the German battleship. She was rediscovered in the late morning of 26 May by a Catalinaflying boat from No. 209 Squadron RAF and subsequently shadowed by aircraft from Force H steaming north from Gibraltar.The final action consisted of four main phases. The first phase late on the 26th consisted of air strikes by torpedo bombers from the British aircraft carrier Ark Royal, which disabled Bismarck's steering gear, jamming her rudders in a turning position and preventing her escape. The second phase was the shadowing and harassment of Bismarckduring the night of 26/27 May by British destroyers, with no serious damage to any ship.

They’re alive! Your thoughts on other Artemis survivors?
My fiance is an absolute beast. Anyone who knows me understands how much I love the ocean, diving, and my obsession with hunting for treasure. I could live on a boat and dive everyday searching the bottom of the ocean. My Christmas present this year was my wedding band made out of real silver from the Atocha shipwreck. All of the rings found from the shipwreck were molded so they could use the silver ingots found and make replicas using actual treasure. This is it next to another 8 reale I have from a shipwreck in coffins patch from roughly 1700. Thanks babe, you're the bomb😘 @jx_518 #Treasure#shipwreck#melfisher#melfisherstreasures
It's possible to stub your toe, bang your knee on cast iron and stumble into a selfie pretending it didn't happen, in ten seconds. #thisphotomaycontainstronglanguage#ouch
