I'm reading this and I keep seeing that this is an off-limits area. Even the people that blame 'others' mention that its off-limits but somehow that doesnt seem to matter? I guess I'm not following the logic.
If a lot of non-deep-cert people keep going into wrecks at 40 meters, and one dies. By this logic, the family would be able to sue someone.
But the reality is that there is a thriving community that choose to ignore local regulation...did I read that correctly?
Another question, for the regulars in that area, is how would you know any news about it? Is it regulated property? is it private property? is there a local orginization to monitor it in the hope of warding off divers? If not, then basically every single diver there is taking their own life into their hands.
It sounds like part of the thrill is because of the local powerplant. Personally, I wouldnt choose anywhere near any sort of industrial area.
