Jerko was welcomed very warmly by every member of the team. We were all in awe that we could have someone with his unique experience on the wreck join us, almost 50 years later no less.

Resuming our story on the 28th, we had a day off but were joined by some new members. Four new Germans arrived with Die Tauchbasis to replace those that left and we were graced with the presence of a very important older diver, Jerko Domančić. Jerko dove on the Gnalić wreck in 1967 when it was first excavated. He is the second diver of the old excavations to join our project and we are very very thankful and excited that they joined us. Today, however, was a relatively boring day on land.

Jerko really impressed us. He wasn't familiar with the new equipment used for diving these days, but his skill shone through very quickly and he was a more than able diver.
