Ebeye Mavis #2


Local Name:

Ebeye Mavis #2

Depth:

Depth is about 70 feet.

Anchoring:

I found this wreck some years back. We anchored north of here a bit, went down over the drop and followed it south. If you are going to dive this, that is about the only way to do it. You'll find that this is VERY clsoe to the Ebeye pier and probably not the safest place to be!

Notes:

This wrecks is just a heap of junk. It is in really poor condition. If you really want to dive a Japanese Mavis, I'd try "Ebeye Mavis #1" first which is a bit furthere north, more intact and a bit safer placeto be. Also, this area is VERY littered.

Photos:

Pardon the poor photo, but this was in my very early days with the camera and it is unlikely that I will go back here often, so I'll include what I have. This pretty much says it all about this wreck. It is just a big pile of junk!
Another poor photo, but here's an engine and prop half buried in the sand.
The nose was perhaps the most intact piece of the plane. The rear of the nose was very open, so I was able to get a few shots inside.
Here's Jerry Mills looking in the window.
There was a time when Dave Sansone was very active in diving. Dave helped get me started in diving all the wrecks. Dave used to take video (as hopefully you can see in the photo). He had experienced some camera problems, then the housing cracked, so I think this is perhps one of the last few dives that he had with the video.
Here's Robert Struppeck in amongst the rubble.
Part of a wing is laying in the sand.
