"What Battleship?"

HMS Empress of India, most likely.

I’m not aware of HMS Empress of India. I’ll have to check out the history of that Wreck. My first thought when “dive-able battleship wrecks” entered into it was the German WW1 dreadnoughts in Scapa Flow. Some of those wrecks were raised, others have been partially salvaged, but a few are still there. They are a diver attraction.

Whew! That’s a pretty deep wreck for my taste. 150fsw, give or take. If I had seen a crab that big I would be certain that I was narc’ed & if I still had my wits about me I’d be terminating the dive. This guy (assuming it was this wreck) decides to wrestle with that crab? I don’t know if he was incredibly brave or just foolish (& lucky).
