An eleven foot two inch tiger from Sykes Reef, near Heron Island. With a homemade 10 gauge shotgun powerhead fitted to a handspear, Wal showed the world what he was capable of.......no fear!
The powerhead worked! To divers this was our equivilent of a parachute aboard an aircraft going into battle.
A major milestone toward conquering the psychological 'fear of the unknown'.
