Check out the photo to see what I mean about the conditions in the Baltic



Amazing photo - looks like the officers' mess with a pot-bellied stove. I think one can still read the clock on the wall between the port-holes.

Thanks, Chris.

My copy arrived last week.  It's very nicely done!

Several organizations I belong to offer electronic publications to lower their costs.  Is it possible to request TIGHAR Tracks electronically instead of by mail?
It's not too late to be great.

Identical to J. Nevill's comment.  Was on travel when the mailing went out - arrived home to find this substantial issue.  Very nice work!  Looking forward to reviewing in detail.  Cheers, John

Absolutely.  We've made the offer twice in TIGHAR Tracks mailings but, so far, only one member has asked for a PDF instead of paper. We don't put out printed publications very often because the cost is hideous, but TIGHAR members do seem to like a hold-in-your-hand journal once in a while.  Anyone who would just as soon have a PDF can just let me know and we'll note your file.

ALL my newletters come via email.  If I want to take it with me (hold it in my hand) I can print it.  Don't see why it wouldn't work the same here.

I received the journal, and love it!  I also don't want a computer copy - I've received lots of things on the computer which had compatibility problems, and don't want to buy new software/hardware etc updates just to read.  Hard to print out pictures, also, and I am happy to have these color shots!

Definitely immersed in seawater, but I agree, two weeks does not make it comparable to "that certain banjo".

The wooden Swedish ship Wasa was recovered after centuries, and I believe has been restored.

This may be of interest re 'the banjo' Titanic Violin

For all of you who are not yet TIGHAR members, the new TIGHAR Tracks is now up on the TIGHAR website as individual, downloadable PDFs for each article.

Also, don't miss the photo caption contest on the TIGHAR Facebook page

Love the Tighar Tracks! 
Quick question and if this has been asked and answered before....my apologies. 
The triangulation that Jeff Glickman did on the "Nessie" photo, was a similar process done to the "Dash Dot" photos?

Good catch.  No, and Jeff has recently been after me to get a hi-res scan of that photo.  The original print is in a collection in New Zealand. I just haven't gotten around to asking them.  Mea culpa.

It would be interesting to pinpoint those objects.

Hey Ric

Maybe you could get a re scan of the following image, having been able to use the original image from Tighar Tracks there seem's to be more to your shadow anomaly, i have just put these together to show what i mean

worth a closer look in my opinion

Thanks Richie

The ship gives us a way to scale the anomaly.  That ship is over 500 feet long and it's farther away from the camera than the anomaly.  The anomaly is far too big to the airplane.
