Little Bustard LCC


Local Name:

Little Bustard LCC

Depth:

The depth is about 130 to the bottom here.

Anchoring:

The bottom here is generally sandy and deep. While I am not convinced it is in the boating channel, the marine department seem to think so. So, at the moment I have no suggestions for anchoring and diving this wreck.

Notes:

I had heard of this boat, but never knew its' location. I was out wreck hunting using a fishfinder with Steve Poirier and Geroge Talbot and we found this one. It wasn't "new", but a new one for us, so we were happy with the results of our wreck hunt that day.

This was also early in my photography career. I have a couple shots, but none are too great. Perhaps I'll post them until I have something better.

I suspect this might be an LCC, but I could certainly be wrong, so if I get more information the name of this wreck could change.

I do remember a hatch in the rear and looking in at two large deisel engines which seem to match the LCC data. It is a steel hulled ship and it is sitting upright on the bottom.

Here's a side scan sonar image if the wreck.
