Little Bustard LCM


Local Name:

Little Bustard LCM

Depth:

This wreck is about 100 - 120 feet.

Anchoring:

I have only dove on this wreck once so far. It was a calm day and we anchored in deep water. The area is pretty much sand. I would recommend trying to anchor up in the shallow water just east of the wreck when you can get a good solid anchor point that is shallow and then swim out to it. I believe that this would put you about 400 feet from the wreck, so it should not be too bad of a swim out there (maybe 5 minutes?).

Notes:

This anchor point keep you out of what they call the boat channel, but ironically, it puts you right where all the RMI water taxis like to run. Use caution in this area! If at all possible only surface at you boat. If you need to surface away from your boat, be very careful since this is a fairly high traffic area.

On a recent visit (1/9/2005), a few observations were made. The ship is pointing approximately 100 degrees. There is damage to the hull on the starboard side that seems in excess of the condition of the rest of the wreck. The wreck appears to be sitting on a communications cable.
