Notes:

This wreck is just another old LCM. It is sitting upright on a 50 foot bottom. The port side of the LCM is is poor shape and is mostly lying on the sand.

While this is not a "new" wreck per se, its' location was not known exactly until 3/11/2005 when Hal Paker, Alex Britain and myself went out searching for it. Alex was the first to spot it, so he gets credit for this one! It appears tht Alex is an up-and-coming wreck hunter!
