Short video describing how we work on cleaning nets on the wreck of the Infidel, south of Catalina Island.
Footage comes from two trips to the Infidel.
Another cleanup trip - on March 2013
We started a skills & drills dive in Island Bay, Wellington. Then we found some rubbish (old rope and nets) so it turned into a clean-up dive instead.
