Nov. Mtg: "Where in the world are Larry & Olga" by Larry Cohen and Olga Torrey

2013 was a busy year for Sea Gypsy members Larry Cohen and Olga Torrey. Besides being fixtures on the local boats and at Dutch Springs, they explored the warm waters of Cuba, North Carolina and the cold waters of British Columbia and Lake Ontario.

At the November 13th Sea Gypsies meeting come and celebrate a year of adventure and Larry’s birthday (really on November 9th). Larry and Olga will show images and tell stories about their explorations close to home, entering a communist Island and on the other side of North America. See the octopus, wolf eels and strange macro life of British Columbia and the large shark and grouper populations of Cuba. Images will be shown of North Carolina shipwrecks and sharks. Local diving and Lake Ontario will also be covered.

Larry Cohen has been creating underwater images since 1989. His photos have appeared in publications such as X-Ray Magazine, Sport Diver, Scuba Diving, Diver, Alert Diver, Northeast Dive News, Immersed Magazine, Sub Aqua Journal, and many others. Larry is a founding member of the New York Underwater Photographic Society and is a past president of The NYC Sea Gypsies. He crews on the New Jersey dive boat John Jack. When not underwater he spends way too much time at B&H Photo where he can answer your underwater camera questions in Live Chat or by emailing him at [masked]. See his work at

Originally from Russia Olga Torrey has been living in New York City for the past 20 years. She has a college honor degree in physical education and worked as a gym teacher, athletic director, and gym owner back in the former USSR. She is also a fine artist and Life member of the Art Students League of New York. She has taken her talent as a fine artist and applied her skills to photography both above and below the water. She has been published in InVetrum, X-Ray Magazine, Northeast Dive News and The Ultimate Depth. See her work at

    Back in june '88 made a dive off the Seahawk forgot with whom.But the wreck site was the WWI Yacht Patrol Boat Tarantula
    .Others in the SG club have also come up with a brass cartridge with projectiles attched and we had to pull off projectile and empty wet gun powder before taking them back home. Does anyone have this same shell it appears to be a 40MM AA shell with U.M.C Co. on the stamphead . Havent found on-line even on the manufacture's web site what this shell was or how did it get there . The profile I found on line sez the converted Yacht had an armament of 2 6 pounders and 2 30 cal guns. But 6 pounders after research found out are 57MM . The diameter of the neck of the shell is aprox 1.75 in which converts to roughly 40 mm. Here is the kicker , 40 MM AA round/guns were no around in WWI . First appeared in 1937 . Wonder if any members are still around since '88 or other divers may have the same artfact and share light on this mystery
