Deep Sea tug MARINIA
« on: March 28, 2009, 16:20:57 »
`My painting of the OTS tug Marinia depicted leaving Argus Island early warning station after supplying bunkers, We also worked with the DSV Alvin and USN Mission Capistrano during project Artemis - A very interesting time.

Cheers Fred

Thanks Mike,
I doubt if they are still there, things have moved on since the sixties with SOSUS ect.
Argus Island  was placed on top of a seamount som 80 miles south of Bermuda.
