The heavier lifting equipment of the Rón Carraig were required to lift the heavy phosphor-bronze telegraph for one of the Lusitania's engines. Here she is pictured breaking surface for the first time since the disaster in 7-May-1915.
Pat Waide moves the rib in to allow archaeologist Lar Dunne take photos of the telemotor as she breaks surface for the first time in 96 years.
Others aboard the Rón Carraig include crew, divers and archaeologists.
