Parker/Wallace Barge


Local Name:

Parker/Wallace Barge

Depth:

Depth is approximately 50 to 60 feet.

Anchoring:

We anchor at a nearby coral head and use GPS to give us bearing out to the wreck. I hope to have the web page done with coral head locations soon. At that time I'll add a link to show you where we anchor.

Notes:

This wreck was found by Hal Parker and Scott Walace. This wreck appears to be a barge of some sort that is inverted. This wreck is located right next to Parker/Wallace LCM and Parker/Wallace Maru. It is quite easy to knock out all 3 in one dive.

Photos:

Jim Bishop explores this nearly overturned barge. Another case where we need to go back and take a closer look to figure out what this might have been. Is it Japanese or American? Was it a wartime casualty?
