PBM #2


Local Name:

PBM #2

Depth:

I'm told the bottom here is about 140 feet.

Anchoring:

I haven't dove this one myself, but I think the best procedure to dive this is one that we used on other deep wrecks with no buoy. This works nicely with 2 pair of divers. Approach the position of the wreck and drop a weight with a line (at least 150 foot in this case) and some sort of float attached (nothing fancy, a clorox bottle works great). This marks the wreck for you. Just keep the float in sight. Two divers suit up. The other two stay on the boat and drop the first pair off at the float. The first pair do their dive. The wreck should be at the end of the line if you've done things right. The divers should follow the line back up when they are done so that the folks in the boat know where to expect you to surface. Once on board, swap out and do the same procedure again. The keeps you from having to anchor deep. Since you'll probably be right at 130 feet, your bottom time will be fairly short, so even when diving in pairs like this you still have plenty of time for a good (typically one hour) surface interval and then a second dive.

Notes:

While the details are a bit sketchy at this point, I believe this wreck was found in mid-June, 2007 using a side can sonar. More details to follow as they become available!
