N-North LCM #1

Local Name:

N-North LCM #1


Depth is about 90 feet to the bridge area and a little over 100 feet up towards the bow.


I would suppose that the best place to anchor is N-Buoy coral head. However, it's a preety fair swim out there. Hal and I did this on scooters and it wasn't too bad!

The early wreck book by Broadwater (Kwajalein: Lagoon of Found Ships) mentions a couple LCMs up in this area. Doug Curry had also mentioned having seen an LCM up in this area before. So, on 6/16/2005 Hal Parker and I took our scooters and were able to locate this wreck and mark it.

The wreck lies within 30 feet or so of the same cable that passes over the N-East wreck. The wreck faces roughly NE and sits upright on the bottom. There isn't too much exciting to see here.
