Making of

Rossarol Wreck

We scanned the wreck of the light cruiser Cesare Rossarol (1914-1918) of the Italian Navy. The conditions were rough – bad visibility, waves and current. But I was able to capture both parts of the wreck in two dives. They lie in 50m water depth in Croatia and are 300m apart.

Scanning in Croatia

We spontaneously set out to scan the TITANC of the Adriatic: The BARON GAUTSCH. She was the first casualty of World War I. Today she rests in 40m water depth and is a famous diving spot.

We had a great support by the Shark Diving Center Medulin and Rovinj Sub.

Museum Rostock

Opening of the new permanent exhibition in the Rostock Maritime Museum (Schifffahrtsmuseum Rostock) . My model of the wreck of the steamer ELSA found its way there.
My team Gezeitentaucher and I identified and modeled the wreck in the North Sea.

MS Aenne Ursula

It was time again for the GEZEITENTAUCHER to inspect the coastal freighter Änne Ursula. With a crew of four divers (Ulli, Dirk H, Wilhelm and Holger) and skipper Sabine we had fantastic conditions. We managed to scan the wreck with cameras to create a 3D model.
On December 4, 1967, the motor ship “Änne Ursula” was on its way from Ghent to Uddevalla with a load of sheet steel. The crew of five died in the stormy sea. The ship was built in 1950 in the Stade shipyard with hull number 144.

Survey report

I went into archive in Hamburg to find out what happend to the ship and the crew.

Mohamed Hasabella

The fishing vessel “FV Mohamed Hasabella” or “MOHAMMED HISABELLA” in 30m water depth. A traditional Egyptian
fishing trawler, which sank in January of 2007.

We dived and scanned both wrecks on July 19th 2022 during one dive.

Vorpostenboot 1101

My teams GEZEITENTAUCHER and GHOSTDIVING GERMANY worked together in a project week in May 2023. The divers from Ghostdiving were cleaning the wrack of V1101 from ghost nets. And I was able to make a full scan of the wreck for photogrammetry.

The picture shows her last minutes on surface. The photo was taken by the plane that sunk her on Aug 13th 1944


The project leader Derk gave the model to the main sponsor of this project week: NV Versicherung

Torpedoboot SMS S-32

Iron shipwreck 20km west of Fehmarn. It lies in 18m water depth.
On April 3, 2023, our team of three divers surveyed the wreck by scanning it with cameras for photogrammetry. In addition, the wreck area was measured using a tape measure.

You can find the complete survey report here: German

Both the position, its dimensions, as well as the basic structure and the steam boiler, which is unusual for German torpedo boats, leave no doubt that it is the torpedo boat SMS S32, which sank in 1910 after a collision. SMS S32, was a torpedo boat of the Imperial German Navy. She was built in 1886 by Schichau in Elbing as one of many small torpedo boats of a similar design for the German Navy. The S32 was the only one of its series to be fitted with two Yarrow boilers for testing.

S32 served from 1894 to 1899 as a training boat with the 1st Torpedo Division in Kiel. From June 5, 1910, S32 served as a tender for the light cruiser Danzig, which was subordinate to the Naval Artillery Inspectorate for the training of the fleet’s gunners. During the night of August 16/17, she was involved in a collision with the torpedo boat S76 in the Kiel outer fjord. Danzig came to the rescue with tenders and took on their crews. Both boats sank, although S76 was later salvaged and returned to service.

Art – Scanning sculptures

Scanning without getting wet? Sounds crazy, but is possible!

BOOT 2023 Düsseldorf

We were on the BOOT show in Düsseldorf / Germany. Some of my models were shown and I held some presentations about wreck identification and photogrammetry.

Deepest mailbox of the world

19m (63ft) unter sea level – probably the deepest mailbox in the world. The diving center Kreidesee offers to send postcards, which can be sent from this mailbox. For this purpose, waterproof postcards can be purchased in the diving center. The mailbox is emptied weekly and the cards are stamped and sent.

Thistlegorm V2

I used the opportunity in Egypt to capture the missing areas of the Thistlegorm wreck. The starboard locomotive was missing as well as the bow area and the sandy bottom. We spent one whole day at that wreck and I made three dives there to scan these areas.

Comparison old vs. new


The Starboard and portside locomotives look almost the same.

Crowded place

The Thistlegorm is a famous diving spot. Many ships with many divers were there. Not the best conditions to scan a wreck.

Thistlegorm cargo

I captured one cargo hold of the Thistlegorm. It contains trucks, motorcycles, guns, airplane wings, etc… She is full of equipment for the war during WW2.
