<HTML> the presence of a german U-boat was a legend for a lot of people in the island of ibiza since a french diver, Elie boissin found it in the seventhies with the help of the former commandant, Philipp schuler,( the former officer was living in the balearic island until is death).
Elie boissin writing a book about different underwater stories of ibiza, and one was about the famous U-602, lost since 1943.
A friend of mind reading this book and try to found the uboat without success. And think it was just a tall story..., also because old fishermen of the island never no a presence of a german uboat.
Last year, with an another friend we explored some spiny-lobster's rocks behind the little island of tagomago,near ibiza (1 mille ). with the sonda of the boat we explore more far of the little island and we found a big "rock" with the sonda. We dive with underwater scooter and what we found was just incroyable : the u-boat!!!! but it's very deep,in a position of 60 degres( the prow is at 48 meters , but the stern is we think between 75/80 meters...)
unlucky, we don't have a gps at this time! After buy one we go back but we don't found it again. in juin this year we found it again after an exploration with underwaterscooter but when we go back to the surface, with the current and the driver of the boat who lose us for 5 minutes, we still just have an approximate point.After that, the weather was too bad for dive here but in jully we go back and i hope to do some nice fotos with my subal-housing.
basicly, i'm looking for more informations about the u-boat 602 and if somebody have the book of elie boissin because my friend lost it. And maybe some body know where is elie boissin???he's still alive some where in france...and can help us to found again the 602.

thank for yours help, and sorry for my english i'm french
