thank you for the links,techno, I sent a message to diveinturkey.com and I still await the answer. I have had contact with Savas Karakas( [url]http://www.savaskarakas.com/) and he told me about the Bouvet:"Bouvet lies at 70 meters and her propellers are removed by Turkish salvage divers in 1965-70. I have interviewed the divers, but did not dive the wreck myself. It is very close to shipping line and the sea traffic is very heavy today. This is why there is no footage or picture. We have dived and filmed Irresistible at 60 meters in the Dardanelles."
I think it should be turned inside out if they managed to remove the propellers.But without pictures it is difficult to get an idea of the state of the battleship.
