Burt Side


Local Name:

Burt Side

Depth:

About 50 feet.

Anchoring:

We anchor on what I refer to as GBR Coral Head (I'll add that location very soon). 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:

This wreck was discovered by Bob Burt. This LCM is laying on its' side and the bridge/cockpit has broken away form the deck and has fallen a short distance to the sandy bottom. This area seems like a dumping area for old LCMs!
