G-Buoy Wreck


Local Name:

G-Buoy Wreck

Depth:

Depth is approximately 70 feet.

Anchoring:

For this wreck I suggest anchoring on "K-9 Deep" coral head. By anchoring there you can anchor in about 25 feet of water and then just make the short swim out to the wreck. Once anchored on the coral head, use your GPS to get a bearing to the wreck. It should only take a few minutes to get to the wreck.

Notes:

This is a small ship much like the Ski Area Wreck. It is facing roughly north and is resting on its' port side. Some small arms ammo can be seen in the forward hold. For at least a few years now there have been a couple live rounds on top (actually the starboard side) of the ship. A hole can be noted on the bottom of the ship in what appears to be the engine room. It is located down very close to the sand and maybe 10-12 inches across.

Photos:

Here's one of the LIVE shells that are laying on the wreck. At the time of this writing, they are located on the starboard side of the wreck (now the top) just above the little cabin area. They should not be too hard to find.

Bob Hamel swims along the top (starboard side) of the wreck.
I suspect this might be the cause of the sinking. This hole is located on the bottom of the ship just above the sand. On the other side of the hole is the engine room.
This shot is looking back towards the stern. You can see the diver's bubbles rising near the cabin area. One of the live shells is seen on top of the wreck.
