Thanks..this thing is referred to R2D2 it is on the Fujikowa Maru. Some of the dive guides will not go in there. One guy in the group was an ahole. He was told to make sure to turtle kick but instead he does flutter kicks and stirred up the slit. I had to spend time in Photoshop to get the slit out of the pic.

OK, I was worried I might need to learn a new kick and might be as hard(er) than getting the backwards frog kick down :p

I thought might be what some people call frog kicks with only ankle movement.

Well a lot of the wrecks are deteriorating badly. Only one of the guides on the Odyssey would go into the room where R2D2 is on the Fujikawa Maru. All the wrecks are falling apart.

They are from Truk. The first one is R2D2 which is on the Fujikawa Maru. Not sure which wreck the other one was on.
