Anyone knows unmanned technical dive

    DAY 9

    To all my FB friends, family and relatives I humbly again asking to repost or share this especially to those who knows anyone living up north ( Batanes, Ilocos Norte, Cagayan, Aparri, Pagudpud or near coastal areas in the northern part of Luzon ). To those who are in contact or knows someone who have unmanned technical equipment that can dive submerge to 6000 feet 56.70 Nautical Mile Northwest of Calayan Island.

    My father, Charlemagne Tambago, Ship Captain of M/V DEO JON that had capsized last December 19, 2019 at around 1100 in the morning 56.70 Nautical Mile Northwest of Calayan Island, Batanes. That around 1040 in the morning the ship encountered big waves, due to the rough sea condition and that the ship had 10 degree to right , my father had ordered Abandoned Ship to his 4 crew while he continually sending distress calls to any nearby vessel. According to the account on the maritime manifest of the 4 crew survival, they have last seen my father at the the bridge and sending distress calls. When they have jumped out of the ship they had lost sight of him.

    All crew had been successfully rescued by M/V FORMENTO TWO who had pickup the said distress calls my father had sent out.

    Since day 1 Philippine Coast Guard North Western Luzon had continually sending vessels to conduct SAR (Search and Rescue Operation) same as the Philippine Coast Guard North Eastern Luzon had sent aerial search on the area. With the joined efforts of PCG and Philippine Navy a continuous SAR are being conducted until to this very moment.

    My father is not yet found...I still hope that he might have been in any coastal areas nearby or other passer-by vessels has picked him up.

    Your continuous support especially prayers are greatly appreciated.

    Thank you...

    The main problem with ROV's (remotely operated vehicles) Charlene, is that they are very expensive to hire.
    They are on deployed from ships and the hire of the ship and the technicians to operate them are also very expensive.
    This is why they are mostly used in the Oil industry where the companies have deep pockets.

    Please enlighten me on how we can get into the ship wreckage as they reckon my father was at the bridge as when he ordered to the crew to abandoned ship he was at the wheel and also making distress calls to make sure his crew will be rescued....
    It's devastating..until now we haven't found him

    The first thing is to find the ship.
    Perhaps the lost ship can be seen from the surface.

    If the ship is not found this way, scuba divers could be used in the area that the ship went down, but this depends on how deep the ship is.
    Obviously, divers can be used but are not normally used in depths greater than 42 metres.

    Side scan sonar would be the next phase (I used to operate sss).
    This is a cylindrical tube that is deployed from the stern of a ship by an armoured electrical cable.
    This makes maps of the sea bed. The survey of the area will be done in a grid pattern and "targets" are found on the sea bed and are displayed on monitors and charts.

    After the ship is located, the next phase is to determine whether the ship can be reached by divers using air tanks.
    If the vessel is too deep for scuba divers, divers could be deployed from a diving bell.

    The last resort is to use a ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle).
    ROV's have cameras and robotic "hands" but they cannot easily do what divers' hands can do.

    Of course, the expense of the operation becomes greater as the plan of action becomes more complicated.

    Hope this helps, Charlene.
    Best wishes and good luck.

    I see on another thread that Search and Rescue Operations are being carried out.
    Let's hope they have good news for you.

    I got the coordinates of the location of the ship...it's 6000 ft it's really sad though Phil Navy and Phil coast guard are really doing everything but the agency doesn't have the equipment

    6,000 feet down presents many problems.
