The Limiting Factor is alert in the quiet, dense suspension of the deep sea.
Above her a riot of light cuts across the sky, it flows with the waves and clouds revelling in the last hours of the day. Sunlight bathes the starboard side of the Pressure Drop's steel hull as she sits on the ocean resplendent in her clear-cut lines and symmetry.
The scale of the deep sea research vessel reflects her equipment and crew numbers. Her impressive stature buoyant in the ocean juxtaposed with the lightness of the Limiting Factor who is poised to descend to record breaking dives with a maximum crew of two.
