Firefly VX 381 7-8-05

This wreck is a fighter bomber located at 12m depth in Hare Bay in Jervis Bay.  We found it using GPS co-ordinates from Michael McFadyens web site.  We also found a large number of juvenile Port Jackson sharks.  We did this dive on August 7, 2005.  This was dive 159.  We were there for 52 minutes and had plenty of air left.  It seems to be a bit of a sanctuary for baby PJs, less than a foot long.  A lovely half hour dive.
