    They can generally tell if it was a Torpedo or mine

    I imagine a stick of dynamite would serve as a depth charge for divers. Could launch from a crossbow.

    All you would need is an array of good fish finders to detect them.

    Very unlikely a stick of dynamite would do much in a case like that and sure could not be launched by a bow.

    U.S. Identifies Iran as Responsible for Two Tanker Ship Attacks in Gulf of Oman Today…
    attacked by unknown entities causing hull breach explosions that rendered the vessels inoperable.
    No doubt Iran feels empowered to attack Western interests partly due to the support expressed by former Secretary of State Kerry and former President Obama. Both have created an open window for Iran by undermining President Trump.

    Mad trapper is talking about using the dynamite as a depth charge against the divers placing the mines. In Vietnam we used to drop a grenade over the side at odd intervals to discourage divers. The concussion could injure or kill a diver.

    I've launched quite a few different things with my bow. A M80 with a rock taped to it is pretty devastating on fish. Think about a full stick with some lead/solder wrapped around it as a depth charge. A bow would launch that pretty far.

    The newer "fishfinder" sonars can see pretty far sideways.

    Grenades would be better. You could launch those with an old M1/M14

    Imagine what would happen if this was a US ship.
    It was,apparently Iran using limpet mines.
