I know this might be going back a bit, but what was it the Amity dragged up in the first series of Trawlermen? Was it a torpedo or a sonar towfish?

A very expensive AUV Bob. One of the mission adaptable mini-torp/subs that you can put sonars/camera gear on and program it to go to set co-ordinates to take readings. Starting price for a basic one was 500,000 with all the shore side gear you need....

I think Jimmy chucked it over the side.........

DOH !!!:eek: :eek: :eek:
