Dive Report: Sharky, Feb 07 Saint Oran, one of my favourites. Dived it quite a lot in the early 90's with Steve H and Jimmy P. I don't think there is a photo of her, but she looks Identical to the St Modan, the only photo I could find was of the Saint Oran (II) which was built to replace her after she sank. Both ships were built by Scott's of Bowling and look to be identical apart from the later one has an enclosed wheel house. The ship which sank her, also sank the Madam Alice out from Oban. If you haven't dived that part of the Clyde expect poor viz (sometimes you do get good viz) and nets on all the wrecks. I have done quite a bit of diving in that area and there are some big wrecks which are all 50m+ the SO is the shallowest, the further out you go the deeper they get but the viz generally gets better. At the time we did it all on air as nitrox was just being talked about, but it would be a good gas diving area you just need a good dive platform.
