This wreck was discovered by Jim Bishop. Jim got very lucky that day and discovered this right after he found Bishop Upright which is just a few feet away and easily seen from this wreck.

Photos:

Here's Blair Barnett taking a look at the bow.
Here's a shot of the screws from directly astern. There's a hole in the hull right between the two shafts. I suspect this is how these LCMs are scuttled.
Just another shot of the props from the side.
