GBR Rubble Wreck #1


Local Name:

GBR Rubble Wreck #1

Depth:

About 50 feet.

Anchoring:

We anchor on what I refer to as LCM Coral Head (I'll add that location very soon). (I should probably rename it since it is not near what I call the GBR coral head, but it's what all my record show, so I'm going to stick with it for now.) Take a bearing to the wreck with your GPS and just swim out to it. I suppose you could anchor right on it, but it would be a little deep.

Notes:

Hal Parker showed me this wreck a few years back. It is in pretty rough shape. From what I remember it appears to be an LCM. I need to go back and take a look again sometime.

Photos:

Batteries seem to hold up well over time.
I'm not sure what this is. I suspect that it is some sort of water intake.
This is a pretty good overview of the whole wreck. There's a little debris scattered around, but this is the main chunk that you will see.
You can see the rudder in the bottom of the frame. The prop is right above it, but a little harder to see. It is partially obsecured by some coral.
