This pair was sunk pre-1974, but the date of their actual sinking is not known to me at this time. Anyone out there have any ideas?

I snorkeled these wrecks. There's not too much left to see except engines and some batteries.


Here's a shot from 1974 showing these two LCM-type vessels sunk in shallow water right at the Carlson pier. Once again, we are lucky that Scott Johnson was here to capture these images!

Just a slightly different angle of our wrecks.

Now here is a more recent photo (2005/2006?) taken by Scott Johnson while flying over Carlson Island. You probably want to click on this image to view the larger version in order to see the details. You should be able to clearly see the outline of the two LCM-type wrecks to the north (left) of the pier. You will also note another LCM-type craft sunk on the southern side (right) of the pier. I have not had a chance to go back and mark this one, but rest assured, I will have that added soon!
