    The applied clay onto the bones and recreated their exact likeness. Truly uncanny !

    Hi Giovanni,
    Yes, I have seen that, it's a bit spooky,the whole thing with the crews that were lost gives me the creeps, not just the loss, but the way they had remove the first and second crews. I wont go into details, aside to say they weren't the same size coming out as they where going in...not plesant.

    This is a link to the MIT lecture on the recovery and preservation of the hunley,the lecture is over three hours long but is worth watching it also includes another lecture on the monitor.
