General Information :
Small Boat Launching :
Weymouth Harbor OS 677789 All in launch & traler park fee, but NO car parking. Located on town side of harbor (eastern).
Notes :

Very good condition and popular with charter skippers. The M2 is is a great dive. Sadly the prop has gone, but virtually all the rest of the vessel is still there. The conning tower is home to a monster lobster, who dissapears back into safety at the first sign of an outstretched arm! There is all the usual life, sponges, pouting and pollack as well as the odd wrasse or two. Visibility is good and you can see a fair amount of the sub at once. A small scour runs at the base of the vessel, and anenomes stick to the hull in this dip. Mega. Well worth the effort.

Good dive. Conning tower all brass, great to "stand" in the top of it and look out over the side. I always like to swim slightly off to one side to reduce the drag when there is still some tide on running across her. I heard stories of the oil seepage years ago when I first dived her and local skippers said you could smell it on a calm day at the surface. The deck gun with fast ammuntion locker behind the conning tower seems to get missed by many. Some 57 crewmen still inside so a wreck to be respected.

Dived the M2 in May 07. Excellent dive if you want to see an intact Sub. No penetration though except for the hanger which is very silty. Spalding SCUBA Club RULE!!!
