Britain Inverted


Local Name:

Britain Inverted

Depth:

Depth is 24 feet to the top of the wreck and just a tad over 30 to the sand.

Anchoring:

I am not sure if there is a really good anchor point. We anchored right next to it and luckily there was enough rock/coral to set outr anchors. Depth was only about 25-30 feet, so it wasn't too deep.

Notes:

This wreck was found by Alex Britain, Hal Parker and Joel Madore in mid-January 2005 while diving from shore. On 2/3/2005 we went back via boat to try to find it so that we could mark it. Hal's lineup was pretty good as the LCM was right under the boat!

This is not a very exciting wreck. It appears to be another LCM-6. It is inverted. No telling how many of these things are sunk here! It seems like we have a new one every time we turn around!
