Notes:

This wreck was found on 11/19/2005 by Dan Barthle, Josh Welch, Hal Parker and Dave Fortin while exploring the area on scooters. There isn't much here. It appears to have been a small LCM-type craft of wooden construction. Possibly a Higgin's boat or something similar. Two small fuel tanks near the stern are present along with one battery and what appears to be the ramp for the bow.

The location on this wreck could be slightly off, but not by much. If anything I'd guess that we are within 30 feet or so. The wreck may be slightly south of the location listed.
