Default Nice Video

Your GoPro camera does a nice job. Definitely a cool wreck.

Default Sure is curious

Makes you wonder what the story behind it is all about, with that boarding ladder hanging off the side.

Boy, those old, straight inboards sure do look cool. Even when they are wrecks. Marvelous find and like Orion said, the back story would be interesting to know.

That ladder was found nearby a few weeks earlier when we first visited the wreck using numbers provided by Diver111. Someone in our party meant to bring it back, but left it there. Doubt it was from the same boat.

Great video. Nice viz that day. Very silty area. Thanks!!

At first I thought this might be a Chris-Craft U-22 Utility. It just might be but the windshield is incorrect snd the bullnose on the bow looks different.

Never the less, nice work.

Not this one -- it would most likely fall apart on the way up. 30-40-50 years on the bottom does bad things to the wood. This wreck was nicely intact, but I can say from touching it that it's pretty delicate.
