The real question is would you have the balls to explore that wreck?

To get a ship that size completely in the frame, you'd have to be a great distance away. For that kind of resoloution, under water at that distance, the water would have to be as clear as tap water. Even then I don't think it's possible. Diving site or not, it looks fake. I pulled a picture of a Mattel M16 lower and a picture of Jesus carrying a Barrett M82 right here of arfcom. I guarantee they're fake.

Ya, I doubt its real also. Never seen anything that clear while diving.
But it does make a cool background though.

It has no visible damage either, I dont see how it could have sunk.

I don't know why, but ships and especially sunken ships freak me the fuck out.

It's an artist's rendering of what the wreck of HMS Royal Oak looks like.

I had downloaded this picture off of the web a few months back. Couldn't remember the name of the ship though until I checked the properties of this one. File name of "roak.jpg" gave it away.

I'm assuming that it's an artist's rendering since I can't imagine it would be possible to take such a photograph.
