Emon LCM


Local Name:

Emon LCM

Depth:

Depth is approximately 70 feet to the top and 90 feet to the sand.

Anchoring:

This is not a boat dive. This is only done from shore. From the float right outside the roped swimming area at Emon, swim out on a heading of 240. My time was about 9 minutes to the wreck. The "Toilet Bowl" is at about the half way point, so you can double check that you are on course 4 or 5 minutes into the swim.

Notes:

This appears to be an LCM-6. It is facing east and laying on its port side. There isn't too much of any interest here.

Linda Fluke swims past the wreck. We are looking at the north side of the wreck and roughly facing Emon beach.
I believe that this is Doug Curry swimming over the wreck. Doug deserves the credit for bringing this wreck to my attention! Thanks Doug!
