E book concept

The idea of the E-Book series came about after seeing so many incorrect publications quoting the wrong identity of the Tile Wreck at Abu Nuhas in the Egyptian Red Sea. Despite a plethora of undeniable facts presented by myself and members of the Red Sea Wreck Academy, self-proclaiming experts still, for reasons known only to them, continued to quote the Marcus as the Chrisoula K. It was archive photographs from Howard Rosenstein and the location of the ships bell, which added weight to Stephan Jablonski’s accounts of the sinkings’. This new material gave us enough to produce the first E-book in 2008.

Being free from restrictions it soon found its way around the world and was passed on from diver to diver. It had the desired effect. Now more and more reports carry the correct identity. Sadly some don’t!

It was also an opportunity to give something back to diving. Of course there was also controversy over the identity and purpose of the Russian Wreck at Zabagad, and this lead to the second title. “75 Years Underwater” is THE definitive guide to the worlds most dived wreck. “Suez Wrecks” highlights the achievements of our regular wreck hunting trips up into the Gulf and “ dive Egypt’s wrecks”  in 5 volumes is the most comprehensive guide to these waters .Other area’s are also featured ;Subic Bay,Leros Truk Lagoon, Maldives Malta  Coron and Palau.

12 years on, the project has proved its worth, despite being ignored by the diving press, and with its place on the issuu platform at KUBI/MIFLEX continues to provide true and accurate  information on many of the worlds best wrecks.

So now we have a total of 23 titles available, and more on the way, yours to enjoy and pass on to anyone who may be interested. Don’t forget we run regular expeditions and safaris to all these featured wrecks.

Safe diving. 

Peter Collings.

THE COMPREHENSIVE GUIDES TO EGYPTS SHIPWRECKS;

30 years in the making, 480 pages of A4 text images and sketches, these 5 volumes cover a journey from the Sudanese border up through the Red Sea, Gulf of Suez and in the final volumes the unexplored Mediterranean coast to Sollum on the Libyan border . It pays tribute to the staggering work of the RSWA members- many of whom have never been underwater, but without their help this would not have come to fruition. A staggering amount of accurate information on over 200 shipwrecks, many still waiting to be found of the med coast. Not yet definitive as there is still much work for our dive team to do- including locating the ALMIRANTE BARRAZZO and the  P&O SHILLONG. No doubt it will be plagiarised and copied into other web sites and there may even be a second edition of the seagoons novel.

THE TILE WRECK-THE TRUE STORY (Silencing the Bantinites pt1).It started the series off- intended as a one of-its success led to another 24 titles- its initial intent was simply- to those armchair experts –“prove me wrong”. A production that reflects the teamwork and dedication of the RSWA members, and fully details how to dive the wreck and check out all the facts.

SHIPWRECKS OF D’PEARL BAY (Coron)

Re defining the identity of these WW2 wrecks, which include 3 world class wrecks-AKITSASUMI, IRAKO and OKIKAWA. Arguably the best wreck diving in the Philippines- blessed with kind depths and stunning marine life, often considered as the “poor mans Truk”, these dozen wrecks are highlighted with sketches and stunning underwater images.

SHIPWRECKS OF THE MALDIVES

An RSWA project which had great success, despite many of the initial wrecks being “fishing boat sunk for tourists”- the team re identified  at least one “real” wreck. Given the vast area the Maldives cover this book should really be the tip of the iceburgh.

PACIFIC SHIPWRECKS.

The cover is graced by the late John Womack , the book covers Truk, Bikini, Guam, Coron, Palau and Kwajelien. For sure an ongoing and expanding work-but a mouth watering account of this fascinating area.

SERIES 4

EGYPTS’ TOP 20 WRECKS

This updated version now is covered in 106 pages- with a change in the pecking order with new wrecks coming into the fray. Points gained for historical content, lack of diving traffic, points lost for overcrowding, diver damage, etc. but the number 1 is still well deserved.

SHIPWRECKS OF LEROS, THE  “MALTA” OF THE AEGEAN.

THE RUSSIAN WRECK (Silencing the Bantinites pt2)

Like the TILE WRECK, experts told us this wasn’t a Russian spy ship, it was a cargo ship, or even a trawler, so the team went down there with a magazine editor and a raft of experts-judge for yourself, we reveal why she had 200 24 v batteries and a plethora of clues to prove her true purpose. A cold war museum.

SHIPWRECKS OF SUBIC BAY

A quite little backwater in the Philippines blessed with some historically unique sites from a pair of M3 tractors complete with 70mm guns to a Spanish war iron clad to a hell ship, not to forget some interesting aircraft. Wwho needs good viz!

THE DOMIAT

Perhaps one of the most exciting finds since the Rosalie Moller.The headline reads”British Corvette sunk by British cruiser”.The detailed report of her sinking did not match the evidence we found.Lying in 52 mtrs she is the perfect technical dive and a fine example of a WW2 warship- the river class Corvette HMS NITH.Contains the only underwater images from this wreck.Another gem in the Gulf of Suez.

SHIPWRECKS OF THE FLORIDA WRECK TRAIL

The sign claims “the wreck capital of the world”, maybe Mel Fisher would agree, but most of the wrecks featured here were sunk as tourist attractions.

It turned out better than I had hoped!100 pages
