Parker/Fortin LCM #2


Local Name:

Parker/Fortin LCM #2

Depth:

Depth was about 70 feet to the wheelhouse. Bottom must be around 80 feet.

Anchoring:

This wreck was discovered while exploring north of GBR North Coral Head while on scooters. It should be about 600 feet form the coral head, so swimming out to it form the coral head is not out of the question.

Notes:

This wreck was discovered on 12/3/2005 by Hal Parker and Dave Fortin. This was our second find for the day! We had just found Parker/Wallance LCM #1. Not a bad day even if we were only finding LCMs!

This LCM had less growth. There were also at least two tires in the hold and possibly some other debris. Perhaps this LCM was loaded with some junk before sinking???? We might need to poke around here a bit more.
