N-North LCM #2


Local Name:

N-North LCM #2

Depth:

Depth is 115 feet.

Anchoring:

I'm afraid that I have no great advice for anchoring on this one! We had a boat watch that followed us here from N-Buoy Wreck. The wreck is a bit of a way up from N-Buoy Coral Head, so it would be quite a swim. Anchoring on the wreck is possible, but it would be a pretty deep anchor just to see another LCM!

Notes:

This wreck was discovered on 7/10/05 but Linda Fluke, Hal Parker, Bob Burt and myself. We started at "N-Buoy Wreck" and headed north looking for "N-North" that Broadwater described as being 50 yards north of N-Buoy Wreck. We never found N-North, but at least we came home with a new wreck to list!

This LCM rests on a communications cable. I believe that this is the same cable that runs over N-East and N-North LCM#1.

The wreck lies inverted. There is pretty severe damage on the starboard side right at the stern. I wonder if this was the cause of the sinking????

Overall, this is not a very exciting wreck. With no good anchorage nearby, this becomes a little bit of a problem for those us us that prefer to anchor in shallow water when possible. Unless you just are compelled to dive all the LCMs of Kwajalein, it might be wise to pass on this one.
