Ebeye Pier LCU


Local Name:

Ebeye Pier LCU

Depth:

I'm not 100% sure, but the depth here must be about 30 feet. The mast of the LCU still sticks above the surface as of this writing (April 2006).

Anchoring:

You probably shouldn't be anchoring here since this is right at the Ebeye pier! The wreck is provided for information only. I can't imagine that it would be very intereting anyway!

Notes:

This sunk fairly recently (maybe in 2005 sometime?). As of April 2006 this wreck is still there right next to the Ebeye Pier. I believe that it is just an LCU, but I'm not 100% sure of that. I should see if I can find the old Hourglass (our local newspaper) that mentioned that it sunk. (At least I'm pretty sure that it was mentioned in the paper!)

Due to it's location and the fact that is it probably just an old LCU, I don't advise folks to dive this one! It is provided for information only.

Photos:

Recent shot of LCU now on it's side (probably late 2007 it was moved and now rests on it's side). The diver is Tom Parker.

As of 1/2/2008 Hal Parker informs me that it appears that there was an attempt to move/refloat the wreck which appears to have resulted in moving it out into the boat channel creating a hazzard and it is now flipped on it's side.
