    Antilla Picture

    There is a nice pre-wreck picture of the Antilla in the Caribbean Journal - a popular snorkel/dive location

    That is really cool to see it before it sank. Thanks for sharing Jacki.
    Hopefully we'll be back in Spring 2018

    As I have mentioned in an earlier post, I had the privilege of working with Adolf (Dufi ) Kock in co-authoring and editing a book here in Aruba on the scuttling of the Antilla Copies are still available here on the island at UNOCO u till the title. " E.S. Antilla " Included in the book is a transcript of the Dutch Naval inquiry regarding the botched attempt of the Dutch Marines at capturing the ship. This was made available through the Dutch Naval Archives. The book is in both English and Papiamento.
