Interesting Luderitz Local – ‘Andy’ by Tristan

The mooring master in Luderitz Bay was a man called Andy. He was very helpful and friendly, and gave some advice on various things we were trying to fix, such as the spinnaker pole. He told me of his deep sea diving in a large metal suit – basically a one-man submarine – and of his plans to find gold hidden in islands and raising a sunken ship from off the coast of South Africa, once he got the funding. We talked for hours about methods to approach all his plans, and of raising the ship and using weights and chains to take it to shore, restore it, and sail it to Holland. Really an interesting man.
